Herge is a Belgium-born comic writer, he studies in France for several years and perhaps knowledge is not the only thing he gained in France, but also an important friend who is going to be a huge part of his life later-on. His name, is Chang Jong-ren, a Chinese student studing in college in France. Chang was introduced to Herge by Father, the two got along quickly and very well. Herge devised to draw a book of Tintin going to Shanghai, China, in 1940s(the era in which they were living in), and Chang taught him fine traditional Chinese art, supervised him in Chinese history and modern political background. However, after the book Le Lotus Bleu (The Blue Lotus) was published, Chang did not appear as the co-author of the book, the reason for that is because Chang was afraid of being prosecuted by anti-governmentists.
