Casterman Publishing House, based in Tournai, Belgium, becomes the publisher of the Adventures of Tintin. A meeting with a young Chinese student, Chang Chong-Chen, marks a decisive turning point. Hergé becomes convinced of the importance of a soundly built storyline and of the necessity for thorough research and preparation. He begins to take seriously what was, until then, just a simple game.


For the French weekly Coeurs Vaillants, Hergé creates a new cast of heroes, Jo, Zette, and Jocko, for the French weekly Coeurs Vaillants. Five books are published.


As a result of the position taken by Hergé in favor of the Chinese people in The Blue Lotus, Tintin's creator is invited to China by the wife of Chiang Kai-Shek. The imminent war in Europe prevents the trip.


On May 10, Belgium is invaded by German troops. The newspaper Le Vingtième Siècle as well as Le Petit Vingtième disappear. Tintin in the Land of Black Gold, the episode in progress, is suspended for eight years. Hergé begins another adventure, The Crab with the Golden Claws, which he publishes in Le Soir, one of the only newspapers authorised during the German occupation.


Casterman Publishing House, are planning to publish standardised books containing 64 pages in full colour, asks Hergé to start adapting previous episodes to fit these new guidelines.


The liberation of Belgium on September 3 ends the publication of the Adventures of Tintin in Le Soir. Some consider that by publishing in a newspaper controlled by the German occupation, Hergé has in fact "collaborated" with it.


He continues the crucial work on his first books. They will be published one after the other according to the new guidelines.

I am a great Tintin fan. I wish Marlinspike was real, and I could go on a tour of the Marlinspike Hall estate. Sigh!
