Hergé (Georges Prosper Remi)

Belgium, 1907–1983 (Cartoonist)

Georges Prosper Remi (1907–1983), known by the pen-name Hergé, was a Belgian cartoonist most famous for being the author of Les Aventures de Tintin (The Adventures of Tintin) comic series. He created Tintin in 1929, originally for a conservative newspaper. They soon became the most popular comic books in Europe. In 1946, Hergé established his own Tintin magazine as a vehicle for publishing his comics; it remained in print until after his death in 1983, finally being discontinued in 1988.
