members participated in a lecture on Hergé, real name: Georges Prosper Remi, the creator of one of the world’s most endearing cartoon characters, TINTIN.

At the Belgian Comic Book Center in Brussels the contemporary cartoonist Bart Hofman (photo) introduced the delegation to the history of the cartoon series which lasted from the late Twenties to Hergé’s death in 1983 and sold over 350 million copies until today.

The members attended the premiere of  TINTIN in Paris, France, where Steven Spielberg called his film an homage to „one of the great icons of popular culture“.
