More About Herge, Matthew Reason, Robert A. Wortham, Jon E. Graham, Robert Kappel, John Reisbord & Sylvia Yount

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: Le Temple Du Soleil (Tintin)?

Unraveling secrets of the Incas (part 2 of 2)  Dec 5, 2004
The previous installment of this story, The Seven Crystal Balls, left Tintin ad Captain Haddock in pursuit of kidnappers on a ship bound for Peru. In Peru Tintin catches a brief glimpse of the professor but is unable to rescue him. He and the captain continue the investigation. Local Indians are uncooperative, until Tintin rescues a local boy and finds sympathetic people who point him toward an Incan curse...

This comic is very much the second half of a mystery. Unless you have read The Seven Crystal Balls first you are likely to miss some major plot points. So read that and this together. In Peru the Captain has ongoing problems with lamas. These pack animals spit when upset and find the captain very unsettling. Jungle shots and scenes set in an Incan temple mean that the drawings here are very exotic and colorful. This is a good action and humor filled adventure story, although the last few pages are perhaps a bit abrupt (4 pages for the Tintin world to return to normal come after 120+pages of increasingly complex mystery).

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 but it is still easy to follow the story because the writing and pictures tend to reinforce each other. However this is a two part mystery and you are going to be reading two books, so if this is overload then try another Tintin comic instead. Also be aware that the professor is unaware of his surroundings. The things he says make no sense - thats the joke. He is a minor character so as long as you know this you should be able to follow the plot OK.
