Hergé and his assistants

The drawings produced by Hergé are the fruit of many collaborations with authors and colourists. This is the story of the main assistants who spent time working with Hergé over the years.

Edgar P. Jacobs (1940)
In 1994, Hergé would call on the services of Edgar P. Jacobs who was to become a highly treasured and valuable assistant.Tintin in the Congo, Tintin in America, King Ottokar’s Sceptre as well as The Blue Lotus were all finished with the assistance of Jacobs who handled the corrections and the colouring. He was also involved in the research that went into Red Rackham’s Treasure, The Seven Crystal Balls and Prisoners of the Sun.
Edgar P. Jacobs brought their collaboration to an end in 1947 to devote himself entirely to his own project Blake and Mortimer.
Bob De Moor
Bob De Moor would join the Hergé Studios in 1950. The very close-knit collaboration between Hergé and De Moor would continue for the next 35 years. De Moor handled a wide range of duties: the supervision of numerous albums including The Red Sea Sharks, Destination Moon and The Black Island as well as handling the secondary drawings that saw Tintin inserted into advertisements or spin-off products. He also assisted in the production of feature-length films Tintin and the Lake of Sharks and Tintin and the Prisoners of the Sun. He would remain loyal to Hergé until the day he died. As a final tribute, in 1988 he designed the Tintin fresco that today adorns the walls of the "Stockel" metro station.
Jacques Martin
This French artist collaborated on The Adventures of Tintin from 1953 to 1972.  He was involved in writing the scripts for Tintin in Tibet, The Red Sea Sharks, The Calculus Affair and The Castafiore Emerald.
