Halloween, between nightmare and reality

Tuesday 31 October
Hergé’s scariest character Rascar Capac – aka he-who-unleashes-the-fire-of-heaven – is seared upon the memories of readers of 'The Seven Crystal Balls'...

Conference – “Hergé, Jacobs: crossed destinies…”

Sunday 15th October 2017

"Hergé, Jacobs: crossed destinies…  when the clear line joined colour."

This unique conference is being held in the exclusive setting of the Hergé Museum and marks 30 years since Edgar P. Jacobs passed away.

Hergé met Jacobs in the 1940s, when Casterman decided to publish the Tintin books in colour.

Come and discover two great masters of Belgian comics:

Hergé and Jacobs, whose lives crossed and then parted. Their  family stories, their careers between 1920 and 1940, their lives through the Second World War, the adventure of Tintin magazine, their legacies for twentieth-century comic strips... all will be revealed through anecdotes and rare documents.

Presentation by Jean Fontaine, representative of the Amis de Jacobs in Belgium.


The conference will start at 3 pm

Free entry but mandatory pre-booking:
