Dans Tintin en Amérique (1932), le héros confirme sa vocation de redresseur de torts, en s'opposant au mafioso Al Capone, aux gangsters de Chicago et aux fripouilles de tout acabit. Déja Hergé témoigne d'une vision généreuse du monde, stigmatisant par exemple l'attitude dominatrice des blancs envers les indiens peaux-rouges.
Hergé, one of the most famous Belgians in the world, was a comics writer and artist. The internationally successful "Adventures of Tintin" are his most well-known and beloved works. They have been translated into 38 different languages and have inspired such legends as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. He wrote and illustrated for "The Adventures of Tintin" until his death in 1983.
