Tim und Struppi, Clawdia Chauchat, Settembrini, Mynheer Peeperkorn, Naphta, alle zusammen in einem Hotel in den peruanischen Anden – geht das überhaupt? Der amerikanische Autor Frederic Tuten beweist, daß es geht. In diesem verrückten Abenteuerroman spannt Tuten zwei der berühmtesten Comicfiguren mit einigen der prominentesten Personen der modernen Weltliteratur zusammen. Besonders hübsch die Liebesgeschichte zwischen Madame Chauchat und dem immer noch nicht recht erwachsenen Tim. Sie verführt ihn nach allen Regeln der Kunst einer erfahrenen Frau – und Tim wird endlich ein Mann. Dieser lyrische Abenteuerroman ist natürlich ein ausgewachsener Literaturscherz für Kenner. Indes ist Tuten kreativer Künstler genug, um eine durchaus einleuchtende Geschichte zu erzählen. Auch wer keinerlei Kenntnis von Tintin oder vom ›Zauberberg‹ hat, kommt hier auf seine Kosten.

"Author of the critically acclaimed Tintin and the World of Hergé and the last person to interview Remi, Benoit Peeters tells the complete story behind Hergé's origins and shows how and why the nom de plume grew into a larger-than-Remi personality as Tintin's popularity exploded. Drawing on interviews and using recently uncovered primary sources for the first time, Peeters reveals Remi as a neurotic man who sought to escape the troubles of his past by allowing Hergé's identity to subsume his own. As Tintin adventured, Hergé lived out a romanticized version of life for Remi."--Jacket.

As the creator of Tintin, Hergé (1907–1983) remains one of the most important and influential figures in the history of comics. When Hergé, born Georges Prosper Remi in Belgium, emerged from the controversy surrounding his actions after World War II, his most famous work leapt to international fame and set the standard for European comics. While his style popularized what became known as the “clear line” in cartooning, this edited volume shows how his life and art turned out much more complicated than his method. The book opens with Hergé’s aesthetic techniques, including analyses of his efforts to comprehend and represent absence and the rhythm of mundaneness between panels of action. Broad views of his career describe how Hergé navigated changing ideas of air travel, while precise accounts of his life during Nazi occupation explain how the demands of the occupied press transformed his understanding of what a comics page could do. The next section considers a subject with which Hergé was himself consumed: the fraught lines between high and low art. By reading the late masterpieces of the Tintin series, these chapters situate his artistic legacy. A final section considers how the clear line style has been reinterpreted around the world, from contemporary Francophone writers to a Chinese American cartoonist and on to Turkey, where Tintin has been reinvented into something meaningful to an audience Hergé probably never anticipated. Despite the attention already devoted to Hergé, no multi-author critical treatment of his work exists in English, the majority of the scholarship being in French. With contributors from five continents drawing on a variety of critical methods, this volume’s range will shape the study of Hergé for many years to come.
