Georges Prosper Remi (1907 – 1983), better known by the pen name Hergé, was a Belgian comics writer and artist, best known for The Adventures of Tintin comic book series, which he wrote and illustrated from 1929 until his death in 1983. His work had a strong influence on European comics, and he was inducted into the Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2003. This is the story of his beginning in the world of illustration from 1922-1932, though he began writing and illustrating before that time. It is a beautiful book, copiously illustrated with Herge's terrific graphics.
