Hergé was in­spired by the works of the French writer Jules Verne, who wrote such clas­sic ad­ven­ture nov­els as Around the World in Eighty Days.

He cre­ated the pen name by re­vers­ing his ini­tials G and R (Georges Remi), mak­ing it RG or Hergé.

Tintin ex­plored the moon in 1954, i.e. 15 years be­fore Neil Arm­strong.

Hergé cre­ated two other well-known se­ries, Quick & Flupke (1930–40) and The Ad­ven­tures of Jo, Zette and Jocko (1936–57).
