The book: Rare First Belgium edition of Tintin in Tibet (French: Tintin au Tibet) -- the twentieth volume of The Adventures of Tintin, the comics series by Belgian cartoonist Hergé. It was serialized weekly from September 1958 to November 1959 in Tintin magazine and published as a book in 1960. Hergé considered it his favorite Tintin adventure and an emotional effort, as he created it while suffering from traumatic nightmares and a personal conflict while deciding to leave his wife of three decades for a younger woman. The story tells of the young reporter Tintin in search of his friend Chang Chong-Chen, who the authorities claim has died in a plane crash in the Himalayas. Convinced that Chang has survived and accompanied only by Snowy, Captain Haddock and the Sherpa guide Tharkey, Tintin crosses the Himalayas to the plateau of Tibet, along the way encountering the mysterious Yeti.
The author: Georges Prosper Remi (22 May 1907 – 3 March 1983), known by the pen name Hergé, from the French pronunciation of his initials, was a Belgian cartoonist. He is best known for creating The Adventures of Tintin, the series of comic albums which are considered one of the most popular European comics of the 20th century. He was also responsible for two other well-known series, Quick & Flupke (1930–1940) and The Adventures of Jo, Zette and Jocko (1936–1957). His works were executed in his distinct ligne claire drawing style.
