About the Author:

Herge (Georges Remi) was born in Brussels in 1907. Over the course of 54 years he completed 23 albums of The Adventures of Tintin series, which is now considered to be one of the greatest, if not the greatest, comics series of all time. With translations published in over 80 languages, more than 230 million copies sold worldwide and a Hollywood movie to its name, Tintin dominates the Comics and Graphic Novels chart even today. Sadly, Herge died in 1983, leaving his 24th album, Tintin and Alph-Art, unfinished, but his hero continues to be one of the most iconic characters in both adult and children's fiction.

Review:

."..an excellent introduction.... Accessible and engaging..." -- The School Library Journal (on Farr's Adventures of Herge)

.".. stunning collection of artifacts, including pre-Tintin drawings, Tintin sketches, newspaper clippings, magazine and book covers." -- The New York Times (on Farr's Adventures of Herge)

.".. a delightful introduction to the world of Tintin, providing extended profiles of the series' colorful cast of recurring characters while exploring Herg 's sources for each of them." -- Publishers Weekly (on Farr's Tintin & Co.)
