Tintin i Tibet (Tintin #20)
Mention Tintin to any fan over 20, and chances are they'll recall Red Rackham's Treasure, and then "Tintin in Tibet". The first - filled with adventure, science, excitement and a tale of pirates - is obvious; the second, not so much.
As everyone knows, one of the forces that led to this album's creation was Herge's own personal problems, and haunting dreams of an expanse of never-ending white. Determined to take the series in a new direction, Herge ended up ...more
This is my dearest Tintin book, as I brought this all the way to my trip to China, Nepal and India! This would be a good traveling companion to Tibet, Nepal (Kathmandu and Bhaktapur) and India (New Delhi). Don't forget to pose with a Tibetanchorten, Tibetan prayer flags, Boudhanath stupa (with the eye!), old temple of Bhaktapur, and the one I have yet to visit: Everest Base Camp and Potala Place of Tibet.

A lot of people seem to like this one but I felt that it was a little lacking compared to Herge's previous two albums: The Calculus Affair and the Red Sea Sharks. This album sees Tintin and Captain Haddock travel to the remote country of Tibet in search of a friend of Tintin's who was on a plane that had crashed in the Himalayas. Now, I found it a little interesting that the plane Chang caught when he was travelling to Europe from China seemed t ...more

Not as much action as usual, but with its mystery woven around a heartfelt storyline that sees Tintin and Haddock searching the snowy mountains of Tibet for Tintin's friend Chang, it's a fantastic piece of storytelling, that, despite the darker subject matter, is still graced with Herge's usual fine sense of humour.
While it can be difficult to separate pleasant memories

There has been some politically correct criticism of the Tintin adventures, which amount to 24 comic books written from the 1930s to the 1970s (the last unfinished from the early 1980s) - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herg%C3%A9 - but the truth is that the adventures wer ...more
Tin-Tin has shown the value of friendship!! Snowy is as cute as ever!! Captain haddock was hilarious!! Enjoyed it fully!! Narration was great and I still remember the animation part I saw years ago!!
captain haddock : not on your life! i don't mind mountain as scenarybut this passion for climbering about over piles of rock, that's what's beats me! Beside, you've always got to come down again, what's it all in aid of, anyway?
==> well, in this case i have to agree with you captain!!
Here, captain met his match at last??

It's a story about a young reporter, his mischevious dog, and the grouchy, usually drunk Captain Haddock. Maybe not the best material to read to a six year-old, but the whole style of it is enrapturing. The art is simple and flat, but has its own charm (as the Wall Street ...more
We would discuss it and debate it regarding the history and polical criticism Herge portrayed.
For today standards Tintin is very Unpolitically correct. Especially in his early books ie Tintin in the congo.and Tintin in russia,However Herge is criticising what he saw wrong in the world back then.1930 was a very different world than 2011.Herge's earlier Titin's were more political than his later books,with the addition of ...more
Karena bacanya diem-2, 'nyolong' dari lemari si Kuching (^ ^;)>
Aku suka! Selain gambar yang b(^0^)d dan cerita yang seru, juga pesan Tintin nge-jleeb banget~
Pesan bahwa Yeti juga manusiaa.., punya rasa punya hatiii!! ヾ(〇)ﾉ *dengan suara serak-serak garing*
Maksudku, pesan kalo manusia yang wajahnya seseram Yeti pun belum tentu hatinya gak seram...//lah
Ya pokoknya jangan menilai seseorang (manusia/makhluk lainnya) dari 'penamp ...more
One of the purer Tintin adventures with no political implications, I particularly enjoyed this one because it preached friendship and loyalty. You better hope you have a friend like Tintin, who would hike through snow-capped Himalayas to save you after ...more
(This scene cracked me up so much!)
Realism doesn't really matter in Tintin, but interesting from an adult perspective: the intro establishes some mountaineering cred for Tintin, but what on earth is the Captain doing on vertical slopes? Also, the good mariner is really pushing the limit of his (hilarious? ...more

His best known and most substantial work is The Adventures of Tintin comic book series, which he wrote and illustrated from 1929 until his death in 1983, leaving the twenty-fourth Tintin adventure Tintin and Alph-Art unfinished. His work remains a strong influence on comics ...more
