Tintin was written by Herge - alias Georges Remi, the supreme master of the cartoon format.
Born in Brussels in 1907 he joined the daily Le XXe Siecle immediately after completing his secondary studies.
His career in publishing was interrupted by military service and war service but on January 10 1929 Tintin first appeared in Le Petit Vingtieme. Other cartoon series appeared, and also book illustrations, magazine covers, drawings and a large amount of advertising work under the Atelier Herge stamp. Tintin sells 200 million copies worldwide and has been translated into 50 languages.

 

Tintin's Chinese adventure was inspired by Herge's meeting with Chang Chong Chen on whom the missing character in 1958's TINTIN in Tibet is based. This story of Japan's occupation of northern China and its withdrawal from the League of Nations was so close to the truth that the imperial government threatened to sever diplomatic relations with Belgium.

 
The Seven Crystal Balls (1948)
Begins with the mysterious accident of an archaeological expedition recently returned from Peru - an echo of the Tutankamen curse, and the kidnapping of Calculus. It culminated in Prisoners of the Sun (1949) with Tintin's and the captain's trek thro the Andes in search of their friend and their discovery of the lost Inca Kingdom.

 
Prisoners of the Sun (1949)

 
Destination Moon (1953)
 
Neil Armstrong's small step for man with the Apollo mission had already been introduced to Tintin readers 15 years before! This story is comparable with the adventure science fiction of Jules Verne and J.G. Wells.

 
Explorers on the Moon (1954)
 

 
Flight 714 (1968)
The Chariots of the Gods craze was in full swing when Herge embarked on this thriller in which Tintin's airliner is hijacked en route to Sydney, encounters extra-terrestrials and at the end it is suggested that it might have been all a dream!
