5.0 out of 5 stars Witty and to the point, but also as sensitive a biography as a comic strip will allow, 21 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Adventures of Herge (Hardcover)
This book is really well done. It goes without saying that it can't include more than a fraction of the facts and figures of a written biography, but it makes up for this with its style and wit. It also manages to address sensitive issues with real feeling.

It is OK as an introduction to the author of Tintin, but for those who already know a bit about Herge this book is full of nods and winks to real-life events, anecdotes and well-known photos and images. It's a lot of fun!

The French artist, Stanislas, is an established comic strip author. His art style is quite contemporary and is somewhat reminiscent of the work of Dutch comic artist and graphic designer Joost Swarte, who actually coined the term 'clear line', when referring to the general style of comic strip art that Herge pioneered.

Highly recommended!
