Georges Prosper Remi, who went by the pen name Hergé, was a Belgian comics writer and artist. He is best known for his comic book series The Adventures of Tintin, which he wrote and illustrated from 1929 until his death in 1983. There are a total of twenty-four Tintin volumes, but the first (Tintin in the Land of the Soviets) was later dismissed by Hergé as embarrassing and the last (Tintin and Alph-Art) was incomplete at the time of the author's death.
The earliest Tintin volumes have been roundly criticized for utilizing offensive racial stereotypes and pro-colonialist outlooks, but Hergé's work overcame these shortcomings for the most part as he--and his storytelling abilities--matured.
