Georges Prosper Remi (1907-1983),
known by the pen name Hergé,
was a Belgian cartoonist
who became famous for creating «Tintin».
His first Tintin adventures were published
in the conservative Catholic newspaper «Le Petit Vingtième»
whose editor-in-chief was Norbert Wallez (1882-1952),
a great admirer of Mussolini
whose signed portrait he had on his office wall,
supporter of the far-right Catholic, nationalist political Rexist Party,
a man who was sentenced to four years prison
for having collaborated with Germany (via),
and who had advised Hergé to create
«The Adventures of Tintin» (via).
Later, Hergé regretted his early work
that was very much influenced
by his editor-in-chief’s nationalist and racist attitudes.
