      Hergé, hijo de Tintín

      Benoit Peeters is the acclaimed author of 'Tintin and the World of Hergé' and the last person to interview the creator of Tintin. In 'Hergé, son of Tintin', he tells the story of the creator's origins, and does not reveal what is behind one of the most influential figurines of the 20th century. Diving into interviews, letters and testimonies, many of them unpublished until now, Peeters reveals the hidden secrets behind Hergé and Tintin.

        Del Quijote a Tintín, Joan Manuel Soldevilla


        Del Quijote A Tintín

        Unsuspected relationship between a book of "mockery" and a "children's" comic strip


        Bringing together and studying in the same research the relationship between the stories of two characters of the stature of Don Quixote and Tintin is not within the reach of just anyone. Only someone radically in love with Hergé's art and his "clear line" and, at the same time, a great connoisseur of Cervantes' immortal novel could take on this task. "From Quixote to Tintin" is organized as a kind of bilingual dictionary Quixote-Tintin, Tintin-Quixote, with different slogans ordered alphabetically where the parallels offered by both characters are analyzed, which are many more than we would have thought before Joan Manuel Soldevilla discovered them and put them in value before our astonished eyes. "From Quixote to Tintin" is, from beginning to end, a feast of sensitivity and intelligence.

          De los Soviets a los Picaros, Bartomeu Castell, Castellano


          De los Soviets a los Picaros, Bartomeu Castell, Castellano

          It was about time that someone also looked into the life and miracles of Hergé's greatest creation, because the detective with the bloomers and the trench coat has found out everything about everyone. He has solved mysteries around the world and has overcome the vicissitudes of time as if nothing had happened. But... what do we know about him? Bartomeu Castell has equipped himself with his magnifying glass and his wide-brimmed hat, and has pursued the Belgian with the bristly fringe to the ends of the earth. He has sought out all the witnesses, from the soviets to the rogues, from those who saw him born, with his simple strokes, to those who witnessed his last salute on stage.  Castell shows us all the existing clues to get to the center, to the heart of one of the Franco-Belgian vignettes that has stolen the most hearts.

            Geografías y paisajes de Tintín - Eduardo Martínez de Pisón


            The planet Tintin created by Hergé is a drawn and imaginary world, but with a real foundation that, although it belongs, physically, politically, socially and culturally, to the moment in which it was drawn -a vision of the world certainly Eurocentric, but inserted in the tradition of travel books-, at the same time that it is already history, it transcends, together with its characters, places, situations and adventures, all time and becomes an archetype worthy of study. Beyond the pleasure they give us as an artistic work, in the simple genius of the plots and their images, Tintin's travels and landscapes form an "imago mundi" that in each drawing treasures a geography, real or invented, in places that can be located on a more or less identifiable map.

            Retrato del reportero adolescente Un paseo por el siglo XX, Rafael Narbona


            Retrato del reportero adolescente Un paseo por el siglo XX, Rafael Narbona

            It is 2007 and Rafael Narbona hears that Tintin could be in an old people's home on the outskirts of Brussels. He has been assured that Herge's famous character is not an imaginary creature, but a real journalist who starred in some of the milestones of the twentieth century, such as the first moon landing. Narbonne goes to Brussels and meets a little old man who looks remarkably like Tintin, but denies being him. However, he offers to talk about the young reporter with the red hair, because he admits that he admires him and knows his adventures very well. The old man, who says his name is Niemand, worked as a journalist and interviewed great figurines such as Lawrence of Arabia, Churchill, Mishima or John Le Carre.
