Studio Hergé was, between 1950 and 1986, a grouping of comic author Hergé and his assistants, who helped him with the creation of The Adventures of Tintin, Quick & Flupke and their derived products. During its existence, the studio had between 12 and 50 employees, including some prestigious artists like Jacques Martin, Bob de Moor and Roger Leloup.

All creations produced by the studio were attributed to Hergé only, with the exception of three albums of Quick & Flupke created after his death which are credited to the Studio as a whole on the cover. After 1986 , the Studio was disbanded and absorbed into the Hergé Foundation.

Works of the Studios

Every work released under the name of Hergé since 1950 can be considered to be works of the Studio. Studio Hergé played a major role, either by colouring, drawing of backgrounds, or by completely replacing Hergé. However, it is difficult to correctly judge the role of the contributors, as Hergé and, later, his rights-holders.

There is a debate over several albums, mainly Tintin and the Picaros and the third version of The Black Island, where some believe that Bob De Moor completely drew the entire book. With the Jo, Zette and Jocko adventure The Valley of the Cobras, Jacques Martin is sometimes said to have drawn the whole of the album.
