Heroes never die
On 3rd March 1983, Georges Remi, known as Hergé, sadly passed away.
The creator of The Adventures of Tintin and Snowy, of Jo, Zette and Jocko and not to mention the gags of Quick and Flupke, left us incredulous and somewhat disheartened, on the road going from Moulinsart to Chicago, passing through Brussels, Wadesdah, Sydney, with a stopover at Port-Saïd, via Moscow and Saint-Nazaire.
People aged 7 to 77, and beyond, from all four corners of the world, paid tribute to the genius of this visionary artist behind the exceptional graphic and romantic works of Tintin’s many adventures.
38 years later, Hergé is still with us. He lives through the eyes and in the hearts of millions of readers who continue to discover his iconic drawings and language used throughout his wonderful books.
