The adventures of Tintin and his dog Snowy have captivated people worldwide since they first appeared as an insert in the Belgian newspaper Le Vintième Siècle in 1929. Drawing on interviews and recently uncovered primary sources, Benoît Peeters reveals Tintin's creator Georges Prosper Remi as a neurotic man who sought to escape the troubles of his past behind the nom de plume Hergé. As Remi retreated further behind the Hergé persona, he was frequently misunderstood and often vilified, yet as Peeters also points out, the character of Tintin remains as popular as ever.
