The Adventures of Tintin  is a series of 24 comics created by Belgian cartoonist Georges Remi, who wrote under the pen name Hergé.

Its hero is Tintin, a courageous young Belgian reporter and adventurer aided by his faithful dog Snowy . Other allies include the brash and cynical Captain Haddock, the intelligent but hearing-impaired Professor Calculus , and the incompetent yet funny detectives Thomson and Thompson .

Its well-researched plots straddle the action-adventure and mystery genres and draw upon themes of politics, history and technology, offset by moments of slapstick comedy.
