(p.3) Introduction
The Comics of Hergé

Joe Sutliff Sanders

University Press of Mississippi

Although Hergé is most famous for crystalizing and popularizing the “clear line” art style, the lines of his life and work are anything but clear. His lifelong gratitude to the Boy Scouts for their influence during his formative years notwithstanding, Hergé came under fire for both a lack of loyalty (to the resistance during occupation, to his first wife) as well as excessive loyalty (to the exiled king and his wartime friends). Scholarship on Hergé has explored the artist’s work as it blurs the lines between high art and low, biography and cultural history, psychoanalysis and gender.
