Philippe Goddin, a hergeologist who has already written the books Hergé, Tintin et les Soviets and Les Tribulations de Tintin au Congo, offers us here a journey-discovery into the heart of Hergé’s creation that we follow in the footsteps of even in the adaptation of his story for a Flemish daily. The unpublished and very personal letters sent from the United States during his two great trips in search of the Indians testify to his great interest in this people whom he sought to defend.
After attacking the Soviet regime and sending Tintin to the Congo in the footsteps of his compatriots, Hergé sends his young hero to the land of Uncle Sam where he is expected as a savior.
Philippe Goddin knew the creator of Tintin and was for ten years the secretary general of the Hergé Foundation before being associated with the scriptwriting of the Hergé Museum. Biographer of Hergé (Hergé – Lignes de Vie, Moulinsart, 2007), president of the association Les Amis de Hergé, he is the author of many books dedicated to the work of the latter including the 7 volumes of the Hergé collection – Chronology of a work (Moulinsart, 2000 -2011).
