The artist is belgian, if i'm not wrong... let's wiki. :)

Yup :)

"The Adventures of Tintin (originally Les Aventures de Tintin), drawn and written by the Belgian writer-artist Georges Remi a.k.a. Hergé, is one of the most popular 20th century European comics. Over 200 million books have been produced to date, with translations into over 50 languages.

The hero of the series is a young reporter and traveller named Tintin, aided by his faithful dog Snowy (Milou in the original Belgian version), Captain Haddock and a variety of colourful supporting characters."

Belgian?

Author/artist from Belgian but that does not mean that Tintin is Belgian.
