Prisoners of the Sun is the fourteenth of The Adventures of Tintin, a series of classic comic-strip albums, written and illustrated by Belgian writer and illustrator Hergé, featuring young reporter Tintin as a hero. Its original French title is Le Temple du Soleil ("The Temple of the Sun"). The album continues the story begun in the previous book, The Seven Crystal Balls.
The book, along with The Seven Crystal Balls, was adapted into a 1969 film, Tintin and the Temple of the Sun by Belvision. It has been also adapted into two episodes of the 1990s television series The Adventures of Tintin and a musical stage production.
