About the Author
Hergé (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, Hergé 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.

However, for those wishing to complete their Tintin collection, it is a must. People who really care about the subject matter have lovingly put this book together and the addition of work in progress papers at the end is an added bonus. The translations have not been added to the original manuscripts but have been placed at the side, which only adds to the experience. This work will not gain Tintin any new fans as there are better adventures but this is a welcome addition to Herge's work. I am not trying to spoil the story for those coming to this fresh, but it does not finish and we are left with Tintin's fate unresolved. It is a shame though that Herge did not offer us any clues as to how Tintin was going to survive, if at all.
