As a child, Herge had a gift for drawing but never had any formal training in the visual arts. He attended both school and the boy scouts during the World War 1 and post-World War 1 era. After he finished school Herge published his first ever cartoon: "The Adventures of Totor". 1929, Herge introduced a cartoon about a traveling Belgium reporter , Tintin , accompanied by his fox terrier (Snowy) traveling the Soviet Union.

Tintin soon became Herge's "ligne Claire" (French for clear line) legacy. The later adventures of Tintin involved other locations of the world from China ¨The blue Lotus¨ all the way to America as ¨Tintin in America¨. After completing 23 books, Herge passed away on March 3, 1983, leaving "Tintin & the Alpha-Art" (The 24th book) unfinished . Later on , Raymond Leblanc produced the following films: ¨Tintin in the lake of Sharks¨ and 1970 ¨Tintín in the temple of the sun¨. And recently Steven Spielberg produced and Peter Jackson directed ¨Tintin and Red Rackham's treasure¨ by means of Motion Capture technique .The series will appeal to Tintin comic-books buffs. An agreeable , fun adaptation from a great comic book. Full of humor , it's a funny and familiar entertaining for kids and grown-ups .
