Creator of Tintin, Hergé, was first started out as a weekly supplement to a Belgian newspaper article. With their first few adventures available initially in black & white with a different art style, Hergé adapted through the times and even redrew some of his earlier works in order to maintain them in the same art style found in the later series. He even needs to cut down on some of his earlier works from 120 pages to the current 62 found in all but one, The Land of the Soviets, which is still preserved at 141 pages.
Tintin not only takes you to many various locales throughout his journey around the globe but the automobiles and planes found in the series are mainly based around their real-life counterpart. Even though some of the locations Tintin and his friends travelled to are fictional, only a handful of them are real such as “The Château de Cheverny” which is also known as Marlinspike Hall in the Tintin universe. Al Capone remains the only real-life person to be depicted in the Tintin series.
