Georges Prosper Remi, better known by his pen name Hergé, was a Belgian strip-cartoon writer and artist. "Hergé" is the French pronunciation of "R.G.", his reversed initials. His best-known and most substantial work is The Adventures of Tintin, a series of twenty-four albums which he wrote and illustrated between 1929 and his death in 1983, when he left the twenty-fourth Tintin adventure, Tintin and Alph-art, unfinished. His work strongly influenced, and continues to influence, other strip-cartoon artists, particularly in Europe. He was inducted into the Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2003.
The Tintin stories are notable for their vivid humanism, their realism (the result of meticulous and wide-ranging research), and Hergé's ligne claire drawing style.
