statue of hergé

You can find a bust of Belgian comics writer and artist Hergé on the corner of a street named in his honor in the French city Angoulême.

Hergé, who died in 1983, is best known for his comic book series The Adventures of Tintin. Steven Spielberg made a 3D Tintin movie in 2011, but I don't know anyone who saw it.
