Tintin is the comic character created by Georges Rémi from Etterbeek, Belgium. Georges Rémi was born in 1907  and from an early age began drawing. From 1924 he began to sign his drawings with the name Hergé, reversing the initials “R.G.” (as they are pronounced in French). The character Tintin and his dog Snowy made their debut on January 10, 1929, in the publication Le Petit Vingtième.
