Tintin is the English name for the fictional main character in the comic book series The Adventures of Tintin.

In the Christmas issue of December 30, 1928 of the Belgian satirical weekly Le Sifflet Hergé published two balloon strips, first published by him. One was about a boy with a white wire-haired fox terrier. The balloon strips catch on and Hergé's boss Fr. Norbert Wallez asked him with two similar figures to make a sequel trip that takes place in the Soviet Union. The two were first as Tintin (until 1943 he was in Dutch named Tintin) and Milou (even much later in Dutch Bobbie) pictured on January 4, 1929 in the Belgian conservative Catholic newspaper Le Vingtième Siècle, Wallez which held sway. It was no more than an announcement of the strip, which was given the name of "les Aventures extraordinaires de Tintin, reporter, et de son chien Milou, au pays des Soviets" (the extraordinary adventures of Tintin, journalist, and his dog Milou in the Soviet Union "and consisted of exactly one picture. Tintin did not have any crest. That he was still in the course of the first strip. Hergé gave as his reason that he at that time still could not draw as well and, therefore, differences in the images of Tintin. For the visibility he gave Tintin a quiff.
