Herge's Birthday

Herge was born on May 22, 1907. He played an 'inside joke' when he named the street in Las Dopicos, '22 of May' on page 54 of 'Tintin and the Picaros'

Happy Birthday Herge!

Tintin Quebecois

Quebec authors have contributed a lot to the post-Herge Tintin universe. Because of their North American influence, they generally believe that Tintin's looks (and sometimes his boy-scout morals!) need to be updated to be brought into the 21st century. Among the most famous of this group is Yves Rodier, who became famous in the Tintinophil circles after his version of 'Tintin and Alph-Art' was published a few years ago.
