Fascinating biography of the creator of Tintin, presented in the style of his famous works.

A wonderful book that artfully tells the biography of Georges Prosper Remi - better known the world over as 'Hergé' - phonetically the letters GR reversed. Depending on the several biographies you choose to support, Herge was either a naive young man bent on creating superb tales of adventure irrespective of the Nazi takeover of the publication he worked for [like many others Belgian in other professions]; or indeed a collaborator- albeit a rather inconsequential participant. History has long shown him to be faithful to his king's appeal for all Belgians to return to their country and make the best of the unfortunate invasion and strive to keep the country's population out of harm's way. The English translation printed by Montreal's Drawn & Quarterly publishers keeps faithful to the original French version ... You meet many of his compatriot artists as well as all those that made an imprint on him and vice-versa. Awesome and fun book!!
