Herge Book and Novel

Herge - Author


Herge (Georges Remi) was born in Brussels on 22nd May 1907. His artistic pseudonym comes from his initials spelled backwards (R.G., as pronounced in French). Over the course of 54 years, he would complete 23 albums. Sadly, he died on 3rd March 1983, leaving his 24th album, Tintin and Alph-Art, unfinished.

The Adventures of Tintin is one of the most popular comics series in the world, with translations published in over 80 languages, and more than 230 million copies of the books sold worldwide. In its scope and innovation, Hergé’s work stands as one of the great achievements of comic art of the twentieth century.

Michael Turner and Leslie Lonsdale-Cooper began translating the Tintin albums into English in 1958, but they were more than mere translations. Michael and Leslie anglicised the albums for a British audience, and this included adapting the jokes and changing the names of many of the characters (for example, ‘Tournesol’ to ‘Professor Calculus’, and ‘Milou’ to ‘Snowy’).
