    (May 22, 1907-March 3, 1983)
    Born in Etterbeek (Brussels), Belgium
    Creator of Tintin (1929)
    Inducted into the Comic Book Hall of Fame (2003)
    A 1989 novel by a ‘Jack Daniels’ – imitating the Tintin style and featuring several characters – managed to avoid a copyright infringement lawsuit by his estate.
    All of his primary schooling occurred during the first World War.
    His Boy Scout nickname was Renard Curieux (curious fox).
    His weekly blood transfusions left him with a human immunodeficiency virus that ultimately sped up his death.
    He died while working on the 24th Tintin feature. (It was subsequently turned into a collection of notes.)
    A young Chinese student inspired him to research and document his material rather than continue improvising.
    Rather than give up cartooning, as his psychologist advised, he created a Tibetan adventure that was a marked departure from the large-scale cast in past Tintin books.
    He managed to go some 45 years before divorcing.
    He refused to let any other artist handle his work, leading to his conjointe transforming his studio into a foundation (1987).
    Andy Warhol listed him as an inspiration — and was subsequently personally commissioned to do portraits of him.
    His portrait was featured on a commemorative 20-euro coin (2007).
