    2. Here s a well done constructed Tintin s adventure Full of rhythm, we visit many places, including India Egypt And unlike previous volumes, the adventure has a real interest.We are no longer at Tintin au Congo Here, we re plunged into the heart of a large scale drug trafficking So, as always it is approached with lots of humour, some facilities at times, but we find all that we love in The Adventures of Tintin and even if it still lacks some cult figures, the optics of the adventurer as we know h [...]

    3. My M.O.S.T fave of the lot This one never gets old, no matter the innumerable times I v read it All the stars to my first ever and one of the most favorite book sleuths and his best sidekick, ever

    4. The first of Tintin s full length adventures4 February 2012 This is the story where Tintin comes on his own While it was still written in a serialised form when it first appeared back in 1934, this story has a proper story arc where Tintin stumbles on a sophisticated drug smuggling ring that stretches across the entire Eurasian continent It is here that Tintin s companions begin to be developed namely the Thompson twins and we also begin to see Tintin going on real adventures and chasing after a [...]

    6. I just loved this new adventure I did not remember any since I read these books so LOOOONG ago that this was the adventure in which Dupont et Dupond appear for the first time, as well as the well known Portuguese character Oliveira da Figueira, the salesman who can make business even in the middle of the desert There is always a bit of xenophobia in the Belgian perspective in which the book was written, but we have to take into account the epoch in which it was written Anyway, it is better than [...]

    7. Interesting i think i know who is the gangster but waiting for the plot to reveal the person very interesting when compared to the earlier parts I enjoed reading and its a page turner tintin is one of the best comics i have ever rad or probably the best it has interesting twists and the adventures are wonderful and fundeful i wish i too have a dog like snowy Tintin is the sherlock holmes of the comic world his ways of solving may not be too typical lke holmes but is quite interesting too waiting [...]

    8. Thankfully, this was a vast improvement upon the previous book, Tintin In America The plotting was tighter and the character of Tintin starting to be developed.The funny bits were actually funny, which helped, and the introduction of Thompson and Thomson gave the story an added dimension missing from the previous book.So, a better offering and a nice set up for the next volume, The Blue Lotus.

    9. Book 4 and I ve finally reached the first true Tintin book This one has all the usual tropes and isn t sullied by Tintin in America s poor plotting.

    10. Cigars of the Pharaoh is one of Tintin s earliest adventures He and Snowy are on a cruise to Egypt when they happen to meet Professor Sophocles Sarcophagus the first of Tintin s absent minded professors and join his expedition But they become embroiled in a complicated scheme involving a fakir, cigars marked with an unusual brand, and Rajijah, the poison of madness Most significantly, Tintin meets the detectives Thompson and Thomson as well as the movie mogul Rastapopolous While Cigars of the Ph [...]

    11. Continuing on with my adventures with Tintin This time Tintin is traveling on a cruise when he comes across a strange conspiracy involving cigars, an odd mark and a secret boss It also introduces the first of the nutty professors who ll eventually become Professor Cornelius So far the best in my reread this is how I remember Tintin The introduction of the Thomson Twins was good to see I look forward to the rest of the series now it s broken out of it s racist origination.

    12. Dans Les cigares du pharaon 1934 , Tintin se trouve impliqu , par hasard et malgr lui, dans un trafic de stup fiants qui va l entra ner jusqu en Inde Entre temps, il aura rencontr Dupond et Dupont, deux policiers balourds dont les r les vont s affirmer progressivement.

    13. Reading further in the series gives me this feeling that i won t look at or enjoy the way i did when i watched the animated series as a child Seems silly and absurd at times and the racist thing is still prevalent in one or panels in the comics Apart from all this, its a good read.

    14. very good like all others but i think Thompson and Thomson were a little much but it was amazing because so many people were after him but he survived.

    15. This has long been one of my favorite Tintin books Ties in well with several of the other books in the series, and introduces you to Thomson and Thompson and the Maharaja of Gaipajama Sets up perfectly for the Blue Lotus.I love all of the historical references in the series It s not just for kids Adults will enjoy it just as much Enough humor for both

    16. Well This is course not the first time I read Tintin But when I was looking at the obscure school of experimental comic book artists called Oubapo recently, Tintin appeared again on my radar screen and I decided to re read this early story, published first in the early 30s.And I ended up disappointed And surprised that I was disappointed Because I think Tintin is one of the best BD bandes dessinnees ever written Usually, the plot is well sequenced and the characters well drawn , both metaphorica [...]

    17. I learned from reading other reviews that this is one of the earlier TinTin books, a stitch up and redrawing of earlier weekly comic strips I could tell the origin in a weekly strip when reading the book because the plot meanders It s a little like some of the Roger Moore era Bond films the plot goes off on tangents but it s so enjoyable to watch that it doesn t seem to matter.Then there are the frequent cliffhangers from which TinTin and the plot escape through convenient coincidences and flat [...]

    18. This volume is a bit whimsical than some of the later books, including lots of conversational contributions on Snowy s part, a scene where Tintin is drugged and hallucinates the image of himself as a baby, and a scene in which he carves a trumpet out of a tree trunk so that he can communicate with the elephants who have temporarily adopted him as their doctor SOL LAH TE DOH means yes Reading this in the middle of the night when I woke up sick may have made it surreal There are as usual many tw [...]

    19. This is where The Tintin series really get entertaining and no surprise this is the spot from which the first episode of the Famous Tintin TV series started as well Tintin and snowy set out on a cruise for a holiday but get entrapped in a adventure which leads them to Coasts in Arab to dry desert to British occupied India and all sorts of chaotic things happen while Tintin uncover the meaning of strange curses and disappearances I remember the TV show vividly as I have rewatched it countless tim [...]

    20. 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 of hi [...]

    21. I started reading the Tintin adventures when I was in primary school This is one of the earliest adventures of Tintin and it started his confrontation with the international villain Rastapopulous.The Tintin books often drew on the political and social issues of the time, and in this book, Herge takes on the global problem of drug trafficking.

    22. 2.5 to 3 stars Ah well, I just about liked it.Not the best of plots I ve come across in Tintin despite the expectations I had after seeing the cover but I can understand that given this is one of Herge s earliest works in the series Liked how British India was portrayed the amount of globe trotting undertaken but the story was bit too messed up for my liking.

    23. My first comic ever Thanks to my old folks for open up my eyes to this great comic I feel like already went around the world long before i did just by being drenched in the pages of Tintin marvelous adventures

    24. A quite enjoyable read with lots of fun and mysterious things happening Tintin has developed as a character and the introduction of Thomson Thompson also added a nice touch to the story and took it to a new level.

    25. This adventure of Tan Tan can show to young readers that the truth is not always as what it seems to be and things can be hidden behind the obvious matters sometimes Besides, he treats animals in a better way this time P

    26. i get this comic in my childhood, and that was the first time i choose to read comic rather than played outside i like his drawing, the background is realistic his comics make me want to go around the world and get to know the culture or the peoples until now i still read comic books

    27. Ah Finally, the Tintin that we love The writing and plot are far superior, as is the artwork.Thomson and Thompson are introduced, as are their spoonerisms which are a riot Oh, and there s India in here too Settling in for the ride, gentlemen
