Join the world's most famous travelling reporter in his exciting adventures as he gets mixed up with an aeroplane hijacking in FLIGHT 714 TO SYDNEY and a South American revolution in TINTIN AND THE PICAROS. This volume also includes the unfinished TINTIN AND ALPH-ART, a fascinating insight into Herg#65533;'s creative process.
Herge (Georges Remi) was born in Brussels in 1907. His pseudonym comes from his initials backwards (R.G., as pronounced in French). Over the course of 54 years he completed 23 albums of The Adventures of Tintin series, which is now considered to be one of the greatest, if not the greatest, comics series of all time. With translations published in over 80 languages, more than 230 million copies sold worldwide and a Hollywood movie to its name, Tintin dominates the Comics and Graphic Novels chart even today. Sadly, Herge died in 1983, leaving his 24th album, Tintin and Alph-Art, unfinished, but his hero continues to be one of the most iconic characters in both adult and children's fiction.
