(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error

(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error

(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error

(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
4 No more hat-rack... Comic Error
8 A phone on which you can dial only 9 digits? Comic Error
39-41 The fruit-seller has the blue door behind him when Haddock runs him over. Then how can he sit there before the door?
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
9 The Shooting Star De Geheimzinnige Ster 1-2 The phone seems to be standing on the table, that explains the variable length of Tintin. One could see it as a different framing, like in a movie. But in any way it doesn't explain how Snowy's head is at that height. Comic Error
3 The doorbell disappears, and a vertical line on the door is missing.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
4 This is optically impossible, due to the extremely long focal distance of a telescope. Anything on the lens, or even within several meters, is not visible.
(credits: André Heck)
Comic Error
7 The problem of the melting asphalt is solved quickly, and even both Tintin's shoes and Snowy's feet are cleaned immediately. Comic Error

(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
8 The phone-booth is, from a driver's perspective, at the left side on the street (look at the door). But while Tintin is waiting, the booth is at the right side of the street.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
16 "Duizend bommem" should be "duizend bommen". Comic Error
18-19 Certain aspects of the Unicorn change quite dramatically. Look at the position of the lamps during the fight on p.19: they seem to indicate that the fight is on the rear end of the ship. But between any mast and the lanterns there should be a few stairs...
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
23 "Krrakvis" should be "kraakvis". Comic Error
31-56 The license-plate on the front of the car is missing.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
38-40 The beam seems rather heavy. Let's estimate that it is 0.25x0.25x2.5m. Let's presume it is oak, and has a specific gravity of 0.8 kg/l. That would make it about 120 kg. How can Tintin lift that off the ground? He would be pulling himself up in the air...
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
41-44 The spear is gone.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
42 No, this is not a glove, someone forgot to color the hand.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
43 The abacus has 4x5=20 red balls. There are however 25 red ones on the picture. Comic Error
52 Nestor is really fast: in the blink of an eye he shifts the position of his hands. No wonder he didn't manage to hit hard enough.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
53-54 Snowy made a real quick wash.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
54-55 Mr. Bird is lying at least half on the lawn, wearing blue trousers. On the next page, he's almost entirely on the path, wearing brown trousers. And it cannot be the other one, he has escaped.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
58-59 Aristide Rapier's door opens to the right. Or to the left.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
59-60 The room where Rapier keeps his collection has no door. And then it has one.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
11 Red Rackham's adventure De schat van Scharlaken Rackham 3-4 What happened to the man who was already in the appartment?
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error

(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
5 Tintin's hand is yellow. And not because he's wearing a glove. Comic Error

(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
40 The chain holding the lead on Tintin's back is gone. Comic Error
51 Tintin's sleeves are no longer rolled up, but just for once.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
52 What happened to all the earth they dug out?
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
61 The island they visited is on 70║ West. Right on a degree of longitude. Why would a globe be divided per 70║ and not per 60? Per 70 would never bring you to 180║, there would be a "slice" of 40║ somewhere, which would not be too aesthetical.
Then there is a degree of latitude through Spain, at about 40║. Again, why 40 and not 45, to end up nicely at 90 (the poles)? And if the island is at 20║ North, it should be halfway the equator and that degree.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
12 The 7 crystal balls De 7 kristallen bollen 3 First there are 9 steps, then 8 on the stairs. Comic Error
10 An extra knife, above the Indian's head. Before Alcazar/Ramon Zarate has thrown it.

28 The big tree next to the house is gone.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
29 The diagonals on the shutters are opposite. Comic Error
30-31 There is something odd with the chairs. Though they are clearly matching, the decorations differ (look at the legs), and some have armrests and some not, and one has even only one armrest. Comic Error
37 The rope, and later Tintin, seem to clean themselves remarkably easy from the soot.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)

(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
3 Callao lies at the sea, far from mountains...
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
9 The phone can dial first 10, then 9 digits. Comic Error
15 The laws of physics don't allow this. If you jump off of a moving object, you keep on moving forward while falling down. So Tintin should have jumped before he was on the bridge, or he should have landed beyond the river.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
58-59 During an eclipse on the northern hemisphere the moon would pass in front of the sun in this direction. But this eclipse is on the southern hemisphere. Image source: Discover Tintin

27 The rocket has 5 "layers" of red and white squares, except here, where there are 6. Comic Error
50-51 Snowy is at the meeting, where Calculus says that Snowy is taking part right now in the testing of his space-suit.

Comic Error
16 Explorers on the Moon Mannen op de Maan 2 Haddock has always had nr. 56 on his chest-pocket.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error

4 There is, throughout the entire book, not a single cloud in the sky on the entire Earth.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
7 Tintin has always had nr. 57 on his chest-pocket. Haddock has 56.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
9 The coloring of the rocket is not correct. Look at the position of the red squares relative to the stabilizer. This happens throughout the book.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
11 Why is there a ladder above the door?
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
12 Tintin is wearing his boots, yet in one frame he has his traditional white socks.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
14 Tintin has given the scissors to Haddock. But he still holds them.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
16 Badge problems for Calculus: first there is no number on it, then there is no badge.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
17 This movement is correct, except for one detail: if the side-engine is stopped, the rocket would keep on rotating forever, unless an equally strong side-engine would function for an equally long time.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
19 Since his escapade in space Haddock hadn't been wearing his uniform, except here.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
33 The pickaxe on the side of the vehicle is gone.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
45 Tintin stopped the engines at 2:05. The others came in immediately and started questioning Wolff. Yet the clock says it's 10:00 while they are talking, only minutes later...
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
17 The Calculus affair De zaak Zonnebloem 6 There is no tree hanging over the house in the painting behind them. And then there is.
(credits: Kaustubh Adhikari)
Comic Error
13 When did this happen? Liberation Dimanche indicates Sunday, but the Hamburger Tages(zeitung?) is from "dienstag" (=Tuesday). Comic Error
15 The text on the side of the package of cigarettes is in Cyrillic and means "ZIGARETTES". One mistake though, in Cyrillic there is no "N", it should be mirrored.

Comic Error
47 How exactly is Zsn˘rr/Szn˘rr spelled? Comic Error
49 Himmerszeck has no napkin around his neck. Which is odd, since he did just before and immediately after this.
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
53-54 Castafiore has two rings on her right hand. Or three. Or two, but on other fingers. Or..
(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
54 The accent on the "O" is gone on the green playbill behind the colonel. Comic Error
60 The professor seems to be talking to himself about himself. I guess Haddock really says this.

(credits: Nicolas Sabourin)
Comic Error
