Tintin: Herge and His Creation, Paperback Book
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


The little black-and-white cartoon figure of Tintin first appeared in Belgium in 1929 in a Catholic newspaper where his creator, Herge, worked.

Harry Thompson looks at the story of Herge, of Tintin and his origins, and beyond to when President de Gaulle could call Tintin 'his only rival'.
