Tintin, c'est l'aventure N° 5 - A la recherche de Tchang

In 1936, Tintin's first adventure in the Far East was published. The Blue Lotus, offered a very

balanced vision of China, far from the sometimes numerous stereotypes of the first books. For this fictional journey, Hergé had for the first time closely documented everything, and collaborated with a Chinese sculpture student, Chang Chong-chen. This meeting marked a decisive turning point in his creative work: not only did Hergé now work on reality, but his friend’s art of drawing left a lasting impression on his work. It was the birth of the clear line.


"Thanks to you, my life has taken a new direction. You made me discover many things: poetry, the feeling of the unity of man and the universe.” Hergé wrote in a letter to Chang
