This was one of my favorite episodes of the series!!

It has a lot of dramatic twists in the plot!! If any one wud like to make a film - I would suggest this and its prequel for filming!!

There is a scope for few scientific facts and children can grasp easier than learning in a class!! I appreciate the author for providing space for those also in this part!!
Another great Tintin book, exciting and often suspenseful :-) And the rocket and method of space travel were very detailed.
This was the first book in the series I ever read. The books in the series just really seemed to stand out on the shelf in my public library so I decided to look through them and read the one with the coolest cover. EXPLORERS ON THE MOON caught my attention because it seemed like science fiction. I started reading it and when I was done I loved it. That was about nine years ago.

I think that it might have been two or three years later but at some time, I was in a bookstore in India and I just ha

Herge really did his research into this comic, but I suspect that the knowledge regarding space travel at this time had moved substantially ahead. I believe that the Russians had already launched objects into space, however despite that it is very clear from this comic that Herge knew what he was talking about. The reason I say this is because of a number of events in the book, such as the effect of G-forces when the rocket enters and leaves the Earth, the knowledge that gravity on the moon is ...more
I pity the child who doesn't get to experience the Asterix the Gaul or Tintin graphic novels. It would be almost as bad as a childhood devoid of Lego in my opinion. In all seriousness though I do believe that Tintin is the perfect example of a book all children should have the opportunity to read. I know that at the school libraries I've visited that children love them still here in Australia. I read many books in my childhood (many of them trashy unforgettable child stories that I look back and ...more
I don't think Herge's adventures of Tintin ever topped the two-parter of Destination Moon and Explorers on the moon. Told in a breathless cliffhanger style, with constant uproarious slapstick (every fifth frame shows someone seeing stars), it does in truth find the series resting on its laurels (one cannot think of a more improbable crew for an expedition to the moon than series mainstays Captain Haddock, Professor Calculus and stow-away detectives Thompson and Thomson. A pity Nestor couldn't ha ...more
The Tintin stories for anyone who has read them and understands their history can't be viewed as anything other than groundbreaking. The beginnings of these stories have been around as long as the Lord of the Rings, the illustration and environments in the Tintin books are accurate and extremely detailed. Anyone who has spent even a little time exploring Herge (Georges Remi) can see the painstaking research and adversity he worked through to compose the world around Tintin. His ideas were ahead ...more

this is my #1 collection of tintin's series. the book is already translated to bahasa indonesia.
to my surprise every page of the book bring some special sense for me. it reminds me of my childhood, and how was everything is very innocent. i remember that there was also tintin's cartoon series, if i'm not mistaken. it was so ancient and long time ago.
anyway, why i decided to buy it, (it was little bit expensive!) was just because i did watch the adventure of tintin (movie), and amaze by the graph
Ce tome est aussi bon que Objectif Lune. Si le premier était très comique, celui-ci est plus en suspense. Il doivent faire face à Jorgen qui veut voler la fusée et ils doivent faire face au manque d'oxygène. Le côté comique est toujours là avec Haddock et les Dupondt. Comme je le disait pour Objectif Lune, Hergé a vraiment été visionnaire lorsqu'il a fait ces deux aventures de Tintin. Plusieurs faits de cet album se sont avérés vrais lorsque les USA sont eux-même allés sur la lune en 1969, 15 an ...more

One of the better ones in that there aren't too many insulting stereotypes. The rocket is a scream.
I like tenten (and yes America, thats the proper way you write it)
Dan Wilson
The conclusion of a two-book series, Explorers on the Moon is one of Herge's best. The art is fantastic, the just-ahead-of-its-time science fiction is intriguing, the dramatic tension is high, and the comedic relief is just right. There is also a bit more nuance than usual in this one as to what constitutes a "good guy" or a "bad guy." While ne'er-do-wells do their best to make trouble, some of the worst challenges Tintin and friends face here are caused by various characters' personal weaknesse ...more
My review, as posted in Tintin Books:

A review:

Destination Moon was an engrossing read, but at times Herge's interest in the science overwhelmed the story. "Explorers on the Moon" doesn't make that same mistake: there are almost no false notes here. This is a suspenseful, emotional, hilarious and engaging story.

For a start, the plot moves along at a nice pace. After takeoff, there are both comic and serious misadventures on board the rocket, and then we arrive at the moon and several more events
The novel begins with Tintin, Haddock, Cuthbert and Wolff aboard a rocket on its way to the moon. They have fainted and are just beginning to wake. The Thomson twins come up, finished with their inspection and to leave the rocket but finally realize its already in orbit. The pills they took in Arabia come to effect and they start insanely growing hair. As the rocket approaches the moon,what other surprises will Tintin and friends encounter?
Read the book to find out!
I picked this book up 2 months

Mainly this book talks about When Tintin on the way to the moon when they are on the way the captain drank too much whisky and went drunk he dreamed of escaping from the rocket and going back to Marlinspike hall the mansion he lives in. Then he succeeds and escapes into space but when he opened the door it triggered a warning and stopped the rocket. Then Tintin found a note that the captain wrote saying that he is sick of being in the rocket and he is going back home to Marlinspike and he went o ...more

Explorers on the Moon continues with Tintin, the Captain, Dr. Calculus and the other guy in the rocket. They've passed out from the severe Gs of lift off and the folks back on Earth fear the worst.

Of course they are fine and manage to wake up and get to the moon. They have a few adventures on the way and discover a pair of stowaways on board (can you guess who). With being in a rocket with limited resources, one stowaway would be a problem, but more than one? Things are getting dicey.

disini tintin dan kapten hadock menjadi manusia pertama yang menjelajahi bulan dengan 'ditemani' si kembar tompson n tomphson.

ini salah satu buku favoritku waktu kecil. dulu masih dibacain sama papa(blm bisa baca ;p), tp tetep aja ngakak. bedanya Penjelajahan di bulan sama buku2 Tintin yang lain, disini si bodoh tompson n tomphson ngikut ke bulan, jadi lebih kocak dibandingkan buku2 lain yg tompson n tompshonnya cuman muncul sekali2.

salah satu contoh kocaknya buku ini yang paling kuingat, waktu

The classic graphic novel. Picking up where Destination Moon left off, Professor Calculus and Tintin discover a secret agent has managed to sneak onboard the rocket with plans to hijack it and abandon everyone on the moon!

(Corregido) Pucha, me gusta la historia, pero me da lata que Tintín me recuerda con sus gestos a alguien que me molesta un poco por su manera de ser, y justamente por elementos que comparten.
Pero me gustó mucho cómo se desarrolla el viaje en sí mismo, y cómo se imaginaban que sería la luna en esa época...

Somehow edisi ini agak gak logis..
Aku baca bahasa indonesia dan bahasa prancisnya sekaligus.
Tapi kayaknya bahasa prancis di edisi ini susah banget.
The pair of "Moon" books are among my favorites. Beautifully realized all around
Chas Bayfield
Excellent, loads of suspense and even some poetry.

kenapa ke bulan bwa tank baja ? jalan2 di bulan pake tank baja ?
Tintin has everything, great art, crazy storyline and interesting characters. He wrote this in 1956 so somewhat in advance of actual moon landing but he was up on the latest information. The cave exploration was particularly fun. Herge's world is full of treachery, no one can be trusted, even your friends who betray you with idiocy or personal weakness. The only one you can trust is Snowy the dog, what is Herge telling us? I believe he was a Catholic believer so maybe that has something to do wi ...more

Le deuxième album du diptyque Lune. Ces albums sont des chefs d’œuvres à presque tous les niveaux. Le personnage de Wolff s’avère avoir des problèmes de toutes sortes, mais réussira à mériter le respect de Haddock. Hergé a résisté à montrer des extraterrestres et autres créatures, mais établi la présence de glace. Le rythme est soutenu, car un danger en est succédé d’un autre. L’album vieillit mieux que la plupart des oeuvres d’explorations spatiales de l’époque.
Even more plot! And a genuinely heroic figure in Frank Wolff. Definitely a good book and even reasonably scientifically accurate.
This book, written a few years before Sputnik and thus several before human space flight, is interesting in its depiction of the moon and of life in space as it was seen in a world that is almost unimaginably different. But I was bothered by the elementary mistakes (or, I would say, disregard) for the laws of inertia, especially with regard to the rocket slowing down. For someone who pays as much attention to detail as Herge, I thought this was inexcusable.
What a great story when Tintin, and his loveable companion Snowy along with Professor Calculus, Captain Haddock and of course Thompson and Thomson arrive on the moon. This story was written before Neil Armstrong's landing making it quite the imaginative undertaking by the writer. This is a great and suspenseful adventure as the boy reporter makes history. I just love reading this stories and the illustrations are cool too!

Georges Prosper Remi (22 May 1907 – 3 March 1983), better known by the pen name Hergé, was a Belgian comics writer and artist.
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
