Ah, Tintin. It's been a while since I have read one of his adventures. I have picked up a few in the last few years aiming to get around to them one day. I guess like a lot of people, I first came across Tintin in the local library. They had 5 or 6 that were hot items in my day. If you saw one you hadn't read yet you had to snap that one up real quick because you may not see it again for months on end.

So I started with the earliest story I own, 'The Broken Ear'. When a South American idol is st

As much as I enjoyed this book, I had to conclude that Tintin is a bloody terrible journalist. At first he investigates the theft of a South American Indian artifact and tails its thieves to their home country. So far so good. Then he gets arrested and faces a firing squad, but is saved by a revolution and through improbable chance finds himself as a colonel and personal aide to the new presidente. Any journalist in his position would start filing stories on their inside view of the new regime, ...more

The Broken Ear for me, is a solid entry into the Tintin series – and a solid Tintin story is still pretty ace when you get down to it, but ultimately, it’s just not one of my favourites.

During his search for the missing fetish with the broken ear, Tintin ends up in South America where he enlists in the army under the temperamental General Alcazar (who will go on to have other appearances in Tintin adventures), the high point of which being a pretty impressive car chase.

As ever, there are some gr

Recommends it for: Everyone.
Another funny adventure by Tin-tin and Milu! The scenes in Latin America are really funny, especially when Alcazar takes Tin-tin for an admirer and decides to nominate him his Aide de Camp! Very funny and witty, as always. The relentless persecution by dutiful Dupond and Dupont continues, much for their own aggravation - in fact, they LIKE Tin-tin, and are still trying to detain him out of a sense of duty...

Very interesting plot as usual!! Looks like this episode is on the phase where the entire adventures of tintin has took a greater leap forward! Before this episode, the adventures were more of a luck rather than a true one!! The acumen nature of tintin was very well described here and I found this book as the first of all!!

However, at most parts the plot was completely irrelevant! I felt bored at few pages in the middle!! There are some loose ends which are left alone!! I can say that the reason
This volume sees Tintin on the trail of a stolen idol from a South American native tribe. There he arrives in the middle of an ongoing revolution not to mention potential war with a neighbouring country with this agenda being pushed by oil companies. This was actually based on a real conflict between Bolivia and Paraguay and involving Shell and Standard Oil.

Tintin eventually meets members of the tribe who the idol was made by. There are some slight racist shades similar to Tintin in the Congo bu

This is not one of the better Tintin books. The illustration makes it very apparent that this is one of the earlier books. I find the story line to be rather choppy. This book was also penned before the introduction of Captain Haddock or Professor Calculus; even the Thompson Twins do not have much depth to them. It is noteworthy that General Alcazar makes his first appearance in this adventure. This book should be read before Herge's final Tintin adventure, Tintin and the Picaros, which in some ...more

My review, as posted in Tintin Books

For his sixth "Tintin" work, Hergé continued his character's trips to far-flung societies, in this case South America. As with Tintin in America and The Blue Lotus, Herge sought to incorporate thinly-veiled political tensions. As such, San Theodoros is at war partly due to the machinations of big oil companies from superpower nations.

The story remains picaresque, leading Tintin through several smaller episodes which are tied together by an overarching plot, bu

Who knew that one clay statue could cause so much chaos. An ancient Arumbaya tribe clay sculpture has just been stolen from a museum in France. And it is investigative reporter Tin Tin’s job to recover it. But it is not as easy as it sounds. Two Mexican men are looking for it as well. There’s one suspect that everyone thinks has stolen the st
I have a vivid memory of this being the first Tintin I ever watched (in the cartoon series made in the early 90s), long before I was able to get my hands on a copy of it. So, I'm pretty sure this review is a nostalgic tribute more than anything else. Although, I must admit, that the story goes into a long strange tangent around the middle of the book, which derails the main plot. It seems that Tintin would never get any work done (or even stay alive) if it weren't for the kindness of strangers, ...more

When a South American fetish carving of a small man-like figure is stolen from a museum, our hero Tintin is on the trail. But it is when the statue is returned that the real adventure of THE BROKEN EAR begins. The original had a broken ear, but the replacement doesn’t, something our reporter notices. Soon he is after the sculptor who furnished the replica, a parrot who is vital to the story, a couple of nefarious South Americans who are trying to kill our hero, and a boat ride to a small South ...more
Francis Bruynseels
A confusing plot: there are multiple copies of the statue that get lost and found and copied - which is the original (who really cares)? - however the slapstick works well and it is perfectly enjoyable.

There is a subplot which the politically correct may not like about a south american dictatorship at war with its neighbour and in a constant state of revolution. The inhabitants are treated scornfully by the author. There is an arms seller (clearly Vickers) who flies in his private plane between

When a South American fetish goes missing, Tintin the investigator goes on the case to find where it vanished to. He tracks down the possible thief to ship bound for South America, but when he gets off the ship, he becomes framed for being a terrorist. Through a bumbling moment of chance, he winds up becoming the assistant for the revolutionary General Alcazar. He eventually regains his quest and ventures down the river to find out the truth behind the fetish.

Herge takes Tintin on an adventure on a mythical country in South America. The book is an interesting study of anthropology and is partly based on an actual event: the war between Bolivia and Paraguay in the 1930s due to the provocations of two petroleum giants in those times.

I started reading Tintin comics when I lived in Greece. I would go to the local "periptero" or kiosk wherever I was--Athens, Tripoli, Amaliada, Crete, and pick up a copy if Tintin. I've never read it in English; only Greek. Greeks publish the text in comics either in all block letters of in lower case, complete with accent marks and notations. I needed to learn properly printed Greek, and I found that in lower-cased Tintin comics. Reading Tintin was more enjoyable than reading dry grammar books ...more

I love the beginning of this one where a South American Fetish is stolen from an Ethnography museum then returned next day with the note "I bet a friend I could pinch something from your museum. I won my bet so here's your fetish back..."

Tintin investigates and soon discovered that the returned statue is a fake because the original had a chipped ear. The mystery takes him and Snowy into the heart of the South American jungle. The frequent chase/capture sequences are a tad repetitive and I wasn't

Better but it's still only getting 2 stars. The plot is tauter and (slightly) less reliant on blind luck and chance contrivance. There are a few amusing digs at the nature of the quickly changing political junta but the South American setting doesn't come through as well as some of the recent stories. Horrific racial stereotyping is toned down this time though we still get a groan inducing Tintin in black-face moment.

Tintin investigates a murder and almost got killed himself in the process. I could call this book as a breaking point for Hergé as he finally starts to get better at story telling and coherence. I didn't like how Latinos were portraited in this issue, the author pictures them as sheep, murderers, corrupted, thiefs and savages (that last one especially when Tintin goes to the rain forrest). Once again I keep on telling me "This was written in1930... 1930..." But it really rubs me on the wrong way ...more

I've read (and re-read) quite a few Tintin adventures now but this one probably won't make it onto my favourite Tintin books.

If you've read later adventures of this Belgian (yes Belgium, not French) detective's adventures then you'll probably feel like #6 "Tintin And The Broken Ear" is still a bit of work in progress for Hergé in terms of developing a recurring cast of favourite and likeable characters. The story is a bit round-about in the Broken Ear but it was still fun following Tintin aroun

This is a truly excellent story. Plenty of sleuthing, slapstick, and sensational escapes make for a rip-roaring read.

It might be a touch too long, with one too many near misses at the end, but it makes up for it with its breakneck pace and stunning illustrations.

The comedy of South American revolutions reads as satire (as the anti-capitalism in Tintin in America) rather than prejudice. This is a welcome relief.

Overall, just lovely.

Changement d'ambiance : après la Chine, l'Amérique du Sud.
Excellent album. Il y a un côté un peu déceptif : on attend des aventures chez d'exotique tribus amérindiennes, et on se trouve coincés dans une dictature militaire pendant la majorité de l'album, avant de croiser les Arumbayas pendant très peu de temps. Le récit se développe de façon bizarre, avec toute une période de "stagnation" où Tintin devient colonel du général Alcazar (!) puis une accélération vers la fin, où le mystère est résolu

Tintin gets caught up in a series of revolutions
25 February 2012

This is one of the earlier of the Tintin novels, before Herge had developed his cast of characters. So far, the only regulars that appear (other than a couple of brief appearances by the Thompson Twins) is Tintin and Snowy, and even in here Snowy doesn't seem to talk all that much. However, this is also the first appearance of the South American tinpot dictator General Alcazar and his South American country San Theodoros.

Katya Reimann
Make no mistake--I love the Tintin series, and I love Hergé's writing and plotting. But--the fabulous characters and stories he created aside--a big part of the charm of Hergé is that he evolved over the course of forty years or so of writing Tintin stories, and he gained a great deal of humanism and sophistication in his political opinions over that time.

There is a lot of slapstick in this particular story, and, more to the point, a lot of dated political slapstick. *The Broken Ear* is of parti

Walau esoknya patung itu telah kembali berada di museum namun berkat pengamatan Tintin yang jeli, terbukti bahwa patung tersebut adalah palsu karena patung yang asli memiliki kuping yang belah.

Tintin is becoming more and more the detective (though he's pretty terrible at his actual profession: journalist). This has been my favorite Tintin yarn thus far, as it has a lot more action and adventure. It still has a fair amount of deus ex machina and coincidence, but it doesn't feel as intrusive as in previous volumes. Perhaps I'm just getting used to it. My favorite part has to be the fact that Snowy's lines are significantly cut in this volume. I can only hope this trend continues.
