Hi, my name is Jens. I am from Germany :-)

I started reading Tintin (or "Tim und Struppi") back in 1977
when some of the stories were published in the comics magazine "Fix und Foxi".
It was a weekly magazine and the Tintin stories were split into several parts.
It was a great way to read those stories because after reading
one part you had to wait for next weeks issue to see how the adventure continued!
I read four of the stories that way and they are still among my
favourites: Black Island, Cigars, Ottokar's Sceptre and Seven Crystal Balls.

Many years ago I saw some of the French language Tintin books
in a bookstore and became interested in Tintin again.
I thought that reading the books could also help improve my French language skills.

In recent years I became interested in the history of the books.
I like to read about the different editions and see what was changed
between black and white and colour editions, or the differences between
original colour editions and later editions.

I have been a lurker for some time, but decided that I should finally register ;-)

Middle-aged Swede here. My mother worked as a librarian back in the 70's and the library had all of the adventures both as comic books and on LPs, so I used to listen to the adventures while I looked at the pictures in the books.

As far as I can remember, the Black Island was the first adventure I read/listened to. I was fascinated by Dr Müller and, five years old, I pretended to be him. My mother told me later that she once heard me playing with my toy phone and saying phrases like "He will require treatment B... You understand?"

I had such high hopes for the Spielberg movie adaptation but I nearly stood up and left the theatre when I realized how poorly this was made. Made me both sad and angry. :/

I read something about Tintin's jeans in the last album (Les Picaros) and just had to register.

I first viewed Rackham's treasure as a Swede learning to read capital letters circa 1975. Then, somehow, I came across The Crab With The Golden Claws. This was all in Swedish. Eventually, my grandmother took me to the cinema and we saw the Prisoners Of The Sun.

Fast foreward, my parents moved to the south of France, and I got to read all the albums in French, the original language. I have vivid memories of where and when I read this or that album.

Examples (Swedish): Rackham's Treasure = North of Stockholm, at home. The Crab With The Golden Claws = cannot remember, but was scared by Haddock and the corkscrew. The Broken Ear: easter hollidays, back in Sweden. The Land Of Black Gold = Stockholm archipelago. Flight 714 = Stockholm Archipelago.

The other albums were read for the first time in French, with Tintin in Tibet being given to me by my schoolmate's mother in Switzerland, anno 1980: Alps and Calculus affair combined, as far as memories be concerned...

Well, this was and is my short presentation. I understand that this is an English speaking site, but can tell that I am fluent in Swedish, French and Spanish, in terms of legal proficiencies.

I don't like translations per se, since i Believe in the original wordings, hence the importance of being able to read any an author in its original language.

Thanks for allowing me on board! (ah, I am a captain as well)
