Hergé was a Belgian cartoonist best known for his comic series Tin Tin. He was known for the "clear-line" style, which combines very iconic characters with unusually realistic backgrounds. This allows readers to mask themselves in a character while safely entering a sensually stimulating world. McCloud refers to the artist's style several times in the book, specifically in comparison with more traditional American artists.
