Martine, a mischievous 10-year-old girl, is experiencing unprecedented adventures with her four-legged companion Patapouf. Tintin, a famous international reporter, lives dangerous adventures with his dog Snowy and Captain Haddock. These two comic strip heroes have one thing in common... Tournai!

Casterman Editions

In 1780, Donat Casterman opened a bookshop in Tournai. This was the beginning of a great adventure for this entrepreneur who then became a publisher and then a printer. First dedicated to religious publications and works for young people, the company took a historic turn when publishing the adventures of Tintin from 1934 onwards.

Thanks to the growing success of Hergé's albums, Casterman Editions present new comics: Petzi, Alix and Lefranc, but also... Martine! This heroine, also from Tournai, came straight out of Marcel Marlier's imagination and was also a worldwide success.
