@Read Pdf ⛄ The Adventures of Hergé ⛓ A GRAPHIC BIOGRAPHY OF TINTIN S CREATOR by Jose Louis Bocquet and Jean Luc Fromental, Illustrated by Stanislas Barth l my The Adventures of Hergis a biographical comic about the world renowned comics artist Georges Prosper Remi, better known by his pen name, Herg Meticulously researched, with references to many of the Tintin albums and complete with a bibliography and mini bios for each of the main characters, the biography is appropriately drawn in Herg s iconic clear line style as an homage to the Tintin adventures that have commanded the attention of readers across the world and of many generationsSeven year old Herg first discovered his love of drawing inwhen his mother gave him some crayons to stay out of trouble He continued drawing in school when he fatefully met the editor of XXe Si cle magazine, where Tintin first appeared His popularity skyrocketed from the s through post World War Two Herg was perceived by some to have aided the Nazi government in Belgium by continuing to publish Tintin in a government sanctioned magazine, and he was briefly imprisoned in the aftermath of the war and narrowly escaped execution Also covered are his marriage troubles in the s and subsequent affair with Fanny Vlamynck, who went on to become his lifelong partner his late career in the s, as his interest in Tintin waned and he occasionally disappeared for weeks at a time as he contemplated giving up his career to become a fine arts painter and a recounting of a humorous encounter with Andy Warhol It thought it was an interesting idea, to present the life story of Tintin s creator, Herge, in graphic novel style The story is told in episodes which range from 3 5 pages in length, organised by year The illustrations are very nicely done, but I found the story a little hard to follow at times, without having much prior knowledge of Herge s background The brief biographies of the main characters included in the back wasinformative. The Adventures of Herge is a brief autobiographical comic of Herge s or Georges Prosper Remi to give his real name life and, at 60 pages, it s a whistle stop tour of the highlights of the Tintin creator s life From childhood, where there were rumours of him being a descendant of the Belgian Royal Family, and where we meet his twin uncles who would later serve as inspiration for the Thompson Thomson twins, to success with Tintin in the Land of the Soviets when he was in his twenties It contin The Adventures of Herge is a brief autobiographical comic of Herge s or Georges Prosper Remi to give his real name life and, at 60 pages, it s a whistle stop tour of the highlights of the Tintin creator s life From childhood, where there were rumours of him being a descendant of the Belgian Royal Family, and where we meet his twin uncles who would later serve as inspiration for the Thompson Thomson twins, to success with Tintin in the Land of the Soviets when he was in his twenties It continues from there, revealing Herge s sexual promiscuousness, to his pride that excluded any other artist as being credited on the front of the Tintin books, to his futile efforts to break free of Tintin s shadow, and eventual acceptance of his legacy as being the creator of one of the 20th century s best loved cartoon characters The book is drawn in the style of Herge s clear line and the events in his life mirror events Tintin himself would undertake in the books While the art is wonderful, the limited number of pages makes for only the briefest of acquaintances with the important people in Herge s life as well as many important events only being mentioned in passing The Adventures of Herge is an interesting book for those wishing to knowabout TIntin s creator and not wanting to spend too long finding out, but anyone expecting ain depth look into his life should try elsewhere I don t know, man I just did NOT connect I read a LOT of Tintin when I was a kid I particularly remember one week in a converted mining town, way up in the hills above Lake Chelan, reading a million and a half of the awesome adventure comics starring a boy and his dog A friend recently gave me some of the recently published collections of the original comics, and I can t wait to revisit them they filled a hole in my comic book shelf.But this I just didn t connect Maybe because wher I don t

true, but it seems to be the most logical explanation for why there is so much showing and so little telling about who these people are and what is going on I think it s cool that the style mimics the original Tintin comics, but there was no overreaching story or plot It seems to follow the life of the creator of Tintin, but there is so little narration, and the story jumps from year to year with no explanation I appreciate that this requires a lot of the reader it requires us to infer things to a higher degree than some comics I appreciate showing, instead of telling, and how that helps our brains grow But I neededhelp here.There s an Index in the back, with the cast of characters, but no reference to it in the beginning, and I had a hard time remembering who was who.And the overall message I got was that he was kind of a cheating asshole to the women he was with and that Tintin was just a cashcow that he was strapped to when he would rather work on high art paintings.So yeah Didn t work for me Herg has always been a mysterious figure to me What interests meis not TinTin, but the research that went into his work The fact that he was a depressive personality and sort of in murky waters with respect to politics makes him a fascinating subject for a biography As far as I know there are two biographies in English one of them is coming out next month and of course, this

there are two biographies in English one of them is coming out next month and of course, this graphic biography by Boucquet, Fromental and the remarkable illustrator Stanislas I am a total sucker for the typical design for graphic novels in France And the great publishing house Drawn and Quarterly keeps the same design And if you looked at it fast enough at a bookstore, you think it was part of the TinTin series So, yes, a very elegant book But I also feel that this book was edited down, because it jumps around a lot And I did enjoy reading it in one sitting well I am in a bed with a cold , but still, i wished it lingered in certain parts of the narrative But for sure, I am going to dwell into the world of TinTin This book wet my hunger for boy reporters who get themselves in jams
