The question is, is the Studios Herge version of the artwork still in existence? And if so has it been pirated?

The version we have is done by Studio Hergé; I think you are talking about the newspaper strip version.

There is no reason to believe that the newspaper version work isn’t still around, barring un-knowables such as theft or damage.

It has been pirated, and coloured too (it was done for B&W strip publication in newspapers, I think).

I just picked up a Swedish copy of the book. First of, I don't think it's very good, but it's still fun to have in ones collection. Now, how do you tell the two editions apart? The one I bought is from '79. It's 44 pages long, with 3 strips per page. The pages are "normal" dimensions. So, which edition do you think I have?

The official edition uses painted backgrounds (as one would find in an animated cartoon), with the characters overlaid in flat colours. The pirated edition is all done with flat colours (like a standard Tintin album), including the backgrounds.

A strange point about the 'officially published' Lake of Sharks is that it is shorter than the normal 62 page format, yet having seen the film they omitted many elements which to me improved the film, and made it a little more Tintin-like.

The version of the album I have seems very weak, with no real character other than shallow representations of Hergé's characters.

Is the comic adaptation of it still being published? I'm going to get more “3-in-1” books tomorrow, is it in any of them?

Still available like any other, not in the 3-in-1 compilations though!

I liked Lake of Sharks. Not as great quality as the others, but an OK extra to the collection. Think the Bond movie Never Say Never Again as a comparison.
