Issue Notes

Printed in Spain. Translated from the 1931 Editions Casterman of Tournai publication, which followed a 1931 Les Editions du Petit Vingtième version and the 1930 serial publication in Le Petit Vingtième. These versions differ significantly from later versions. According to a foreword by the translators, "the young Hergé reflects the colonial attitudes of the time. He himself admitted that he depicted his Africans according to the bourgeois, paternalistic stereotypes of the period. The same may be said of his treatment of big-game hunting and his attitude toward animals."

Synopsis
Tintin and Snowy go as reporters to the Belgian Congo, where the Ba Baoro'm witch doctor and a mysterious white villain plot against him. Tintin evades their threats with the help of Catholic missionary priests. The Congolese people have followed Tintin's exploits in Le Petit Vigntième, and are delighted to meet him; in fact, they quickly acknowledge the white boy as their leader. Tintin learns that the threats he's been facing stem from Al Capone's attempts to control the diamond trade, and returns to Belgium for his next assignment.
