“Believing so much in their dreams, men make them a reality.” –Hergé
Professor Calculus invites Tintin and Captain Haddock to join him in Syldavia, where he is working on the biggest project of the century: sending a rocket to the Moon. The challenge promises to be thrilling. Even more so when, to Captain Haddock’s awe, the professor invites them to be part of the expedition!
Tintin, perhaps one of the most famous cartoon heroes of all time, is as much a child of the 20th century as his creator, Georges Remi—aka Hergé (1907-1983). Tintin’s adventures, marked by his inquisitiveness, sense of mystery and witty humour, are deeply rooted in the events of that tumultuous era.
