More About Herge

Herge Georges Remi was born in Brussels, Belgium, in 1907.

Although he would go on to be one of the world’s most iconic cartoonists, Georges was not a particularly standout student as a young boy. Instead, he preferred to indulge in his love for adventure and games with his friends on the streets of Brussels. In secondary school, he joined the Boy Scouts. His drawing skills quickly caught the attention of the Scout leaders, and it wasn’t long before he was illustrating a Scout magazine and creating his first characters.

It was around this time that he decided to take the pen name “Hergé,” the French pronunciation of his initials in reverse. Georges left school at age 17 and eventually got a job helping create the children’s pages of a daily newspaper, Le Vingtième Siècle.

Hergé first drew Tintin in Le Petit Vingtième (the children’s pages of Le Vingtième Siècle) in 1929. The little reporter was an instant success in Belgium and beyond. By the 1950s, the Tintin adventures had become so popular that Hergé set up Studios Hergé. This not only supplied Hergé with a team of assistants and artists to expand the Tintin universe, it also freed him to do in-depth research for his stories, many of which took his characters to places that Hergé — and his devoted readers — had never seen.

Although Tintin traveled around the world, Hergé stayed in Belgium for most of his life. In his later years, the artist and author managed to make trips to several countries and see firsthand the places that inspired Tintin’s exciting adventures.

Herge was born in 1907 and died in 1983.

Reviews - What do customers think about Tintin en Amerique?

Tintin catches gangsters in the big city and the wild west  Nov 23, 2004
Tintin and Snowy are kidnapped by Al Capone immediately after arriving in the United States. Of course they escape - and spend the rest of the book rounding up gangsters. They chase Mr Smiles from the big city to an Indian reservation and through the wild west, so you get a good variety of American adventure landscapes. Finally they return triumphant to the city and Snowy gets kidnapped. There is a sequel so you know things end happily.

This is probably my favorite Tintin book. It has a lot of ironic moments: in the first pages of the book Tintin succeeds in catching Al Capone but no one believes him, the discovery of oil turns wilderness into big city in a matter of hours, and an animal rights activist is upset that a puma is eating a deer in the wild.

If you are reading this to help learn French, Tintin comics are good for reading at a French 2 level. There are a lot of words that aren't basic vocabulary (like "indian reservation") but it is still easy to follow the story because the writing and pictures tend to reinforce each other (not to mention the French is often similar enough to English to guess the meaning).
