Happy birthday Hergé.

Honourable mention should also go to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, born 150 years ago today.

Yes, happy birthday to Hergé (and Sir ACD)!

It’s not just Hergé’s and Sir Arthur’s birthdays, by the way…

I see it’s also the anniversary of the first (editorial) cartoon to win a Pulitzer prize, back in 1922. This was called On the Road to Moscow, by Rollin Kirby (no relation to Jack, as far as I can tell).

I mention it because it is an example of another cartoonist’s view of the Russian situation, in a less humorous vein than Hergé’s Land of the Soviets only a few years later.

Hey! that's cool! Happy Birthday to Hergé and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle!
I see that today is the anniversary of the first (editorial) cartoon to win a Pulitzer prize

That's interesting. Thanks, Jock!
I think I'll go directly over to wikipedia and see who else has a birthday on May 22. If there are any good ones, I'll report back.

Notable birth: Richard Wagner in 1813

Notable death: Emperor Constantine the Great in 337

I remember it because it's also my Brother's birthday.

Moderator Note: To avoid this becoming an all-year round thing of people saying they have or haven’t remembered Hergé’s birthday, could we please limit posts here to perhaps a week either side of the event?
Many thanks!

Today would have been Hergé’s 105th birthday - many happy returns, M. Remi!
