Hunt for the perfect book about the history of Tintin continues.
If you haven't read any of his comicstrips, this is a very good overview for a beginner on Herge's life, work and inspirations. Now I definitely want to go to Herge's museum.Note to self: Herge comes from Georges Remi (R.G).
The pictures are stunning but the navel gazing and psychology not so much. Perhaps a bad translation? Herge strikes me as a man with simple tastes - I don't know if he would appreciate this book by a purported 'friend'. And why all the emphasis on Castafiore? I like the Milanese Nightingale but there's no way she's a more important character than Calculus.Though I'd read anything Tintin related, this was a disappointment.
Very nice explanation of Herge's Tintin with beautiful layout and illustrations. Although at some points it was idolising both the creator and the creation (it's a biography after all), it made me want to read again some of the issues.
Very much an art book, detailing Herge's art style and influences. Not much biography or how he came up with the stories though, if that's what you're looking for.
