Dans les coulisses des aventures de Tintin

Dans les coulisses des aventures de Tintin is a book written by Benoît Peeters and published by Bayard Culture in September 2019.

Although born in an environment with narrow convictions, Georges Remi, better known as Hergé (1907-1983) managed to give birth to an open and universal work. For Hergé comics was never a minor art.

He wanted to bring everything into The Adventures of Tintin: his curiosity and anxieties, his passions and dreams and his sensitivity to the century. A few weeks before his death he declared to have put all his life there. In any case, he had put in the best part of himself. Benoît Peeters, a specialist in the work of Hergé, whom he knows better than anyone, evokes in this fascinating text, full of anecdotes revealed for the first time, the complex itinerary of this creator and this art of comics.
