If you are fluent in german and are a Tintin fan, then I strongly suggest you read the Tim und Struppi adventures! English translations of the world famous classic franco-belgian Comics like Tintin, Asterix, Lucky Luke, or Spirou and Fantasio are generally extremly poor!!! Maybe that's why hardly any british kids ever read these adventury stories, whilst in germany you will have a hard time meeting a 15 year old who hasn't read them all! Especially Tintin and Asterix have massivly contributed to the vastly superior knowledge of geography and history of german kids, to the virtually non-existing one of british people!!!
Tim und Struppi and the Cigars of the Pharao (Die Zigarren des Pharaos) and the follow up the Blue Lotus (Der blaue Lotus) are pure history and geography lessons, that come as exciting, thrilling, adventure stories like no others ever created!
In later adventures, when Captain Haddock and Professor Calculus (Balduin Bienlein) join Tintin and Snowy (Struppi), you completely loose the funny dialogs and monologs of these two characters in the english translations. Captain Haddock's cursing orgies are a sheer delight in german. How on earth can you translate "Hunerttausend heulende und jaulende Höllenhunde" (Hundered thousand howling and yelping Hounds of Hell), into something so silly like "Blistering Barnacels"???
It's time the english versions get re-edited and newly translated and become part of the national curriculum. Unless we prefere our kids to further not be able to name one single continent (87% of all 15 year olds, according to a survey!)!
If you are learning or studying german, then the german Tim und Struppi Comics are an exiting way to enhance your language skills.

Tintin travels through Egypt and India 6 Dec. 2004
By Gagewyn - Published on
Format: Paperback
On a journey to Egypt Tintin meets absentminded Egyptologist Professor Siclone. The professor is in search of mystery. The only clue is a symbol drawn on a piece of parchment. Once in Egypt Tintin and Snowy follow the professor into an underground passageway marked by the symbol and find empty sarcophaguses marked with their names. They escape and find themselves pursued by mysterious criminals. All the while the mysterious symbol keeps turning up on stone walls, painted on trees, and on cigar labels...

This comic is fun because of the exotic landscapes. Tintin travels through Egypt and India which are drawn with exotic flare. Whenever he thinks he has entered the traditional untouched east, western civilization intrudes: He rescues a lady from bandits only to discover that he has just spoiled a scene from an adventure movie. He is captured by Bedouins who recognize him as a celebrity reporter and are happy to have him as a guest. He approaches two arabs to ask directions and finds that they are in fact the Thompson and Thomson team who have donned robes to blend in. The east meets west theme, inherent even in the mysterious cigars marked with an ancient Egyptian symbol, kept me guessing through the book.

The Cigars of the Pharoah maintains the quality of other books in the series. There are jokes for children and for adults, so it is a good purchase for families and public libraries. There are some loose ends which are tied up on part 2 of the story: The Blue Lotus.

Tintin comics are good for reading at a German 2 level, if you are reading this to help learn German. There are a lot of words that aren't basic vocabulary but it is still easy to follow the story because the writing and pictures tend to reinforce each other. This particular comic seems to have more every-day vocabulary than other Tintin books.
