Evany[edit]

Should the (minor but real) role of Evany (Eugène van Nyverseel) be included? He was Hergé's first collaborator, working with him from the start of Soviets on. According to Goddin ("Lignes de Vie", 2008), he did some very minor work on the Soviets, and took over some of the other work of Hergé (like Totor) to free him to work more fully on Tintin (see also Peeters on him).

Lucien[edit]

I have my doubts about the name of Lucien Peppermans - it is most unusal as a name, whereas Pepermans is quite common. Also, several sources have the Pepermans spelling. For one example, which looks like having some authority, see http://www.objectiftintin.com/whatsnew_Tintin_1103.lasso

Besides, earlier versions of this article do show the Pepermans spelling. I am however not an authority on the matter, nor do I have access to authorative dococuments. Who can confirm or correct? Jan olieslagers (talk) 14:23, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing this up, Jan; Midnightblueowl or I will check into it and get back to you. —Prhartcom (talk) 18:38, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
It's Pepermans, see e.g. [1]. Peppermans would indeed be quite unusual, it looks as if some Anglophone "corrected" it. Names are always tricky, yesterday I had to correct "Puosette" to "Poussette" on the main Adventures of Tintin article, also a FA. 19:42, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
According to the Benoît Peeters biography (as translated by Tina A. Kover), it's Peppermans, with the double-p. This of course contrasts with the Pepermans of the Pierre Assouline biography (as translated by Charles Ruas). Given the arguments presented here, I am happy too see Pepermans used.
