The Adventures of Tintin is a series of comic books written by Belgian Hergé.[1] The books feature adventures of intrepid boy reporter Tintin and his faithful dog Snowy. Originally written in French, they have been translated into many languages, including English. The Tintin books have been popular around the world for over 70 years.

  • Tintin, the creation of the Belgian comic-strip artist known as Hergé (1907–1983), is a boyish newspaper reporter of remarkable courage, who travels the world in pursuit of stories that reliably expose him to life-threatening danger. He appeared first in a story called “Tintin in the Land of the Soviets,” in which the brave youngster went to the Soviet Union to report on the world Josef Stalin was building — a world of artificial famine, phony elections, and political assassination. These stories, originally created for a children's supplement to the conservative Roman Catholic weekly Le XXe Siècle, were an instant success. Book-length collections have sold over 200 million copies in 50 languages. (National Review)

It has also been made into a movie by Steven Spielberg.[2]
