The  Adventures of Tintin (French: Les Aventures de Tintin) is a series of comic books by Hergé. Hergé began developing his ideas in 1929 and the series soon grew to become very popular throughout the world.

The comic books tell the story of a young Belgian reporter named Tintin, and all the dangerous, exciting and humorous adventures he has all over the world. He is nearly always accompanied by his pet fox-terrier, Snowy, as well as the grumpy sailor, Captain Haddock, the absent-minded inventor, Professor Calculus, and the two foolish detectives, Thompson and Thomson.
