Tintin is a young Belgian reporter who is involved in dangerous cases. In this series, Tintin is almost always involved in a variety of dangerous international criminal cases where the speed of thought, courage and luck in the seconds last managed to save himself and the world. Almost in every adventure he involve himself in an inquiry or investigation, but he very rarely makes the results of investigations into the news just like any other journalist.
Tintin is a reporter, and Hergé’s almost always use these characters in each of his adventure stories. Often the story happens in the days when he still worked as a journalist as well (the most easily recognizable are the Bolsheviks in Russia and the Second World War) and other not yet occurred when the story is written (one of which is Journey to the Moon. Hergé also creating a separate world for Tintin which is a comic picture of the world originally taken from his photo archive.

Although the comic adventures of Tintin are “formulaic” – featuring a mystery story but can be solved with good and acceptable sense of logic – Hergé also spice up comic with spices typical of his humor. Blends humor is predictable, but done in an elegant way that makes the reader lost in the story. The formulation of spices like this can also be found in the comic strip Peanuts, and The Three Stooges. Hergé also very familiar with several styles in the comic strip, especially those known as “pacing”, a technique of writing a story that can be found in one of the series is demond Castafiore, where in the story looks as if there is a huge event but actually did not happen.At first, Hergé did a lot of improvisation in the writing of this series, which almost always Tintin may be out of any difficult issues that will befall him. Until finally he, Hergé, was moved to do extensive research before beginning the story and plot plan well. This he did after completing a series of Cigars of the Pharaoh.
