Long before Tintin appeared in 1929, Georges Remi’s active imagination was conjuring up stories of international intrigue.
During the years of the First World War (1914–18), Georges used the margins of his schoolbooks to scribble stories about a little character who played dirty tricks on German soldiers. As a teenager, he joined the Boy Scouts and began drawing a comic strip featuring Totor, an adventurous Boy Scout who would become the basis for Tintin.
For any child growing up amid the political and cultural changes of the twentieth century, Tintin was a role model who both inspired and delighted. Hergé drew upon the political events of the time and dedicated his life to creating adventures that transported readers to places around the world — from Japanese-occupied China in The Blue Lotus to the Arctic Ocean in The Shooting Star. Throughout his career, Hergé strove to bring as much of the real world as he could into the world of Tintin.
