However, Greg displays infantile humor when he has the Captain draw a handlebar mustache and pointed beard on her photo in Klow airport at the beginning of the film. The basic nature of the characters is still there, and it's not that much of a departure from what Hergé himself may have written. Tintin and Captain Haddock, accompanied by Thomson and Thompson, are off on holiday to visit Professor Calculus in the Villa Sprog in Syldavia, that familiar Tintin setting. A thunderstorm approaches and the lights go out. The exposition annoyed me and showed that the person creating this comic wasn't as experienced as Herge with the medium. The underlying plot doesn't hold up to as much scrutin As with the remainder of the Tintin stories, I read them years ago but am now just adding them to Goodreads. For all that, The Lake of Sharks plays out pretty much as you would expect a Tintin adventure to, albeit with a touch of James Bond feeding through into the tone of the adventure and in the twists and perils of the storyline.
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. My children and I have already read this book over 4 times. This is shorter than other Tintin works and some of the scenes don't flow together as well as they could since all the artwork is just animation captures. 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. Perhaps the most noticeable difference is the plot, which isn't awful, but also plainly isn't by Herge. They kidnap Niko and Nushka, blackmailing Tintin into a meeting to which he must bring Calculus's machine.
Maybe that's why there is no author listed on the book. Tintin is determined to find out! It tries a little too hard to pack lots of action into a rather under-developed narrative in which most of the characters don't seem to have much to do. Reseña completa en: Boy this this one weak. The story opens up with the theft and switch of an object from a museum that is almost identical to the opening of The Broken Ear, while the conflict between Borduria and Syldavia from King Ottokar's Sceptre forms the background to the story, Professor Calculus having inexplicably decided to relocate to his laboratory to a lake on the border between the two countries. The basic nature of the characters is still there, and it's not that much of a departure from what Hergé himself may have written. With some sequences taking place underwater, Calculus' shark submarine from Red Rackham's Treasure is also given another spin.
Every year since 2009 Fred helps Dr Mauricio Hoyos, a Mexican scientist specialist of that mythical animal, to place beacons of the great white sharks to be able to track their migrations and learn more about their daily habits. It was not written by Hergé who merely supervised , but by the Belgian comics creator Greg Michel Regnier , a friend of Hergé. The story begins with the sixth archaeologist being put into sleep by the contents of a crystal ball that are thrown into his car by Incas. Basically, it's just a hodge-podge of several other Tintin stories rather than anything new, but you could say the same about several of the later Tintin stories. But what does the King Shark have to do with it all? Is there a connection with the recent theft of famous works of art from the world's leading museums? In this book Tintin successfully lands a plane that was certain to crash, finds some treasure, locates the bad guys, has a few fights wins some, loses some , gets in a situation where a bomb is gonna go off but he is trapped, he escapes of course and then nearly drowns before a finally boat chase. Back in Europe, one by one they fall into a deep sleep and only once a day, all at the same time, they wake up for some minutes and have hallucinations of the Inca god.
The professor has been secretly working on a strange machine which produces 3D illusions, but then Tintin unmasks a spy in the villa. Kids helped them too, and guess what? First the sharks made Tintin and the kids prisoners, then they had them prisoners! The underlying plot doesn't hold up to as much scrutiny however, but it's all good fun. As with the remainder of the Tintin stories, I read them years ago but am now just adding them to Goodreads. A look inside the album will certainly reveal that this isn't drawn by Hergé or his studio, the book derived rather from animation cels with a great deal more detail in the backgrounds and richness in the colouration. So, it's certainly not Hergé, but is it Tintin? Published in 1971, the book concerns art thieves.
Even young kids, unless they are very young, will notice this book could not have been written or illustrated by Herge.

While I am not the biggest fan of Hergé's storytelling and identify a lot of problematic elements in the stories, this book makes it very clear that he had a solid understanding of the format of the graphic novel in moving a story along and showing action. The sea mad Tintin escaped thousands and I think a few tens of pirate sharks. Who is interested in the professor's invention? With translations published in over 80 languages, more than 230 million copies sold worldwide and a Hollywood movie to its name, Tintin dominates the Comics and Graphic Novels chart even today. Herge would have known how to show not tell many of the exposition boxes.
While I am not the biggest fan of Hergé's storytelling and identify a lot of problematic elements in the stories, this book makes it very clear tha Boy this this one weak. The shark also appears briefly in The Red Sea Sharks. In its own way then, while not of the calibre of the best Tintin, and certainly not a patch on the artwork of the regular Hergé books, The Lake of Sharks is fairly faithful to the characters and, as such, it's not a bad adventure. Meanwhile Tintin and Captain Haddock arrive at Klow airport in Syldavia , on a visit to see Professor Calculus at Villa Sprog on the mysterious Lake Pollishoff. Back in Europe, one by one they fall into a deep sleep and only once a day, all at the same time, they wake up for some minutes and have hallucinations of the Inca god. If your kids already love Tintin, get it.
Perfect for lovers of graphic vels, mysteries and historical adventures. The last conscious archaeologist stays with Tintin and Captain Haddock in Moulinsart. When seven archaeologists find an old Inca temple, they become the victims of an old Inca curse. An enjoyable grab bag last lap for Tin Tin, which is marred because the story is penned as an adaptation of a film and isn't drawn by Herge. In this book which is taken from a movie and has no Herge input Tintin goes once more on a quest to find the root cause of all evils.
