Episode 8

90 years old and filled with boundless vitality!

Born in 1929, Tintin seems younger than ever.

A sign of renewed vitality, Tintin continues his journeys thanks to his determination and dynamism.

Hergé said: "The universe of Tintin is optimistic". Today more than ever, in this era of a changing world, Tintin's adventures are always fascinating. Now in the present we all have something of Tintin in us: he is at the core of a complex universe, to which we can identify our own experience and achievements.

This 90th anniversary is an opportunity to reaffirm the universal values of Tintin through a rich programme, using the albums, reports, exhibitions and animations. Feel free to download the schedule of festivities:

The beginning of the anniversary year will be marked first by an album release in digital of the second adventure of the little reporter: . But not just any version! The original one with the original line and the lettering of Hergé, starting from the planches executed by his own hand, restored, if it is required and colorized in line with the techniques of the 21st century.

Moulinsart has taken on the mission of restoring, improving and embellishing thanks to new technologies, the quality of reproduction of the first adventures published in black and white. After Tintin in the land of the Soviets (coloured version), comes Tintin in the Congo, in a digital colour format.

Today, not only are we celebrating the birthday of the world's most famous reporter, but we also salute its creator. The Hergé Museum, totally dedicated to his work will also celebrate its 10 years in 2019!
