About Hergé ( Georges Remi )
The young Georges Remi could have never imagined that through his creation, Tintin, he would become so famous internationally. A modest, charming and humorous man, Hergé is regarded as Father of the European strip cartoon. Although he created many other cartoon characters, it is Tintin that has aroused the imagination of generation of readers. Tintin is hero of twenty-four adventure series. The character, Tintin, was a journalist, a special envoy sent to the furthest corner of the earth, a correspondent charged with reporting his impressions of his journey to those at home. The creator of Tintin preferred a simple discreet lifestyle. Georges Remi hid behind Hergé, who hid behind Tintin.
Since 1924 Georges Remi signed his drawings with the name Hergé, from his initial "R.G" (as pronounced in French ).
