The Adventures of Tintin (French: Les Aventures de Tintin) is a series of comic albums created by Belgian cartoonist Georges Remi (1907–1983), who wrote under the pen name of Hergé.

The series is one of the most popular European comics of the 20th century.

Tintin had been published in more than 70 languages with sales of more than 200 million copies.

The series first appeared in French on 10 January 1929 in Le Petit Vingtième, a youth supplement to the Belgian newspaper Le Vingtième Siècle.

The success of the series saw the serialised strips published in Belgium’s leading newspaper Le Soir and spun into a successful Tintin magazine.

In 1950, Hergé created Studios Hergé, which produced the canonical series of twenty-four Tintin albums.

The Adventures of Tintin have been adapted for radio, television, theatre, and film.
