Tintin (periodical)


December 6, 2021

Tintin, also called Le Journal Tintin at certain times, or Kuifje in the Dutch version - named after the character of Tintin in this language - is a weekly realistic cartoon magazine from the second half of the 20th century published by Éditions du Lombard . Subtitled "Le journal des jeunes de 7 à 77 ans" then "Le super journal des jeunes de 7 à 77 ans", he published series like Blake and Mortimer, Alix, Michel Vaillant, Ric Hochet, Thorgal and, well Of course, The Adventures of Tintin and Snowy and Quick and Flupke. The first number of the Belgian edition was published on September 26, 1946. This edition was also distributed in Canada. Soon after, the Dutch version, Kuifje, was also released. The first number of the French edition, also distributed in Switzerland, came out in 1948. The idea to publish this magazine came from André Sinave, who wanted to capitalize on the success of the Tintin series created in 1929 for Le Petit Vingtième by Hergé. Subsequently, a meeting between Hergé, André Sinave and Raymond Leblanc is organized. Raymond Leblanc and Georges Lallemand founded the Le Lombard publishing house in Brussels, responsible for publishing the periodical. In 1968, 1969 and 1970, the newspaper took part, with the firms Apollinaris and Torck, in the organization of the last three editions of the Kings of the wheel advertising beach games on the Belgian coast. The newspaper ceased to appear in November 1988 because the beneficiaries of Hergé decided to launch, without Éditions du Lombard, a new newspaper entitled Tintin reporter. This disappears after a few months, due to lack of success. The Lombard in turn launched a new periodical intended to replace Tintin, Hello Bédé, which appeared until 1993.

Post features


The start: 1946-1949

The first issue, dated September 26, 1946, has twelve pages and brings together renowned comic book artists: Paul Cuvelier with The Extraordinary Odyssey by Corentin Feldoë (Corentin); Hergé with Le Temple du Soleil (Tintin); Jacques Laudy with The Legend of the Four Aymon Sons; Edgar Pierre Jacobs with Le Secret de l'Espadon (Blake and Mortimer). From the thirteenth issue (December 19, 1946), the Journal de Tintin goes to sixteen pages. The following years, Hergé takes again Jo, Zette and Jocko, appeared for the first time in Cœurs Vaillants. Étienne le Rallic provides a humorous variation with Jojo Cow-Boy and Teddy Bill. In 1947, Tonet Timmermans designed covers and then a comic strip. In 1948, Jacques Martin arrived with Alix, at the same time as Dino Attanasio and Willy Vandersteen. In September 1948, the Journal de Tintin went from sixteen to twenty pages. For several decades, Hergé kept artistic control of the magazine, hence his interference in, for example, The Spanish Phantom of Willy Vandersteen, the first episode of Bob and Bobette published in the newspaper, (Suske en Wiske in Dutch is at his tenth story at this time); this episode and the following ones published in the Journal de Tintin are redrawn in a clearer and more refined line. On October 28, 1948, the first French version of the Journal de Tintin was published. Although the Belgian and French versions feature almost the same comics, there are separate editorial lines. In addition, while the Belgian edition restarts numbering every year, the French edition uses continuous numbering from year to year. In 1949, Bob de Moor joined the Journal de Tintin and drew a few pages there.
