The now controversial "Tintin au Congo" was first serialized in black and white in the pages of "Le P'tit Vingtième", the youth insert of the Belgian newspaper "Le XXème Sciècle" between 1930 and 1931. It was the second Tintin story, after his visit to the Soviet Union. But as master cartoonist Hergé moved out of the strips and into full-color albums, he redrew and colored the story (but not Soviets, never Soviets) in 1946. I wanted to compare some panels to show how his craft evolved, but also to see how he changed the story in places (1930 version in English translation; 1946 in original French).
And there are cartooning differences, of course. A shorter Tintin, less detailed backgrounds (Hergé often put his studio artists on this kind of thing), and more caricatured faces. Moving to albums, Hergé adopted his characteristic typesets for dialog and captions as well.
