Summary (IBList user synopsis):

The second story in the series following the young reporter Tintin and his dog Snowy.

First published between June 5, 1930 and June 11, 1931 in Le Petit Vingtième (a childrens supplement of the Belgian newspaper Le Vingtième Siècle). Published in book form in 1931 and redrawn and published in colour in 1946. Tintin in the Congo has often been critised for its racist and colonial content, although Hergé claimed that he was only portraying the views of the time. Later editions were edited, removing more controversal scences.
