A comprehensive, funny tribute to Professor Calculus, one of the most endearing scientific geniuses in children's literature. Learn all about the absent-minded professor who first appeared 80 years ago in Herge's 12th Tintin book, Red Rackham's Treasure in 1943.
Professor Calculus is universally loved by Tintin fans across the globe.
The Adventures of Tintin continue to charm since they first found their way into publication, and more than 230 million copies have been sold, proving that comic books have the same power to entertain children and adults in the 21st century as they did in the early 20th.
Herge (Georges Remi) was born in Brussels in 1907.
Over the course of 54 years he completed over 20 titles in The Adventures of Tintin series, which is now considered to be one of the greatest, if not the greatest, comics series of all time.
