An employee varnishes an artwork representing the character of 'Tintin' from the plastic artist Christophe Tixier, alias "Peppone", at his workshop in La Roque d'Antheron, southern France on April 13, 2021

"Did Herge really create the character of Tintin?": this is the question that the lawyer of the French artist Peppone will try to investigate on April 15, 2021, for alleged "counterfeiting" at Marseille's Court by the company Moulinsart, manager of the work of the Belgian designer.
