During my vacation over the recent holidays, I had a chance to see the movie The Adventures of Tintin. I am admittedly only nominally familiar with the comics, but since I really enjoyed the movie, I've thought about reading more about them and their author. A recent biography on Georges Remi (aka, Herge) written by Benoit Peeters and translated by Tina A. Kover has been published by John Hopkins University Press. A review appeared today in the New York Times Book Review (see link below). If you've read the book or plan to read it, I'd love to hear your thoughts.http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/22/books/review/herge-son-of-tintin-by-benoit-peeters-translated-by-tina-a-kover-book-review.html
