Yes, you were lucky: I spotted the book at Abbey's some time last year, but the staff there refused to give me a discount for the slight damage. It is good to know that the book now belongs to a member of Tintinologist.org. :-D

O.K., let us get back on topic.

I want to purchase Tintin in the Congo.

I see both a black and white edition and a color edition listed – I am more interested in the B&W book, but I would like to know the specific differences between them. Can anybody answer?

Moderator Note: Please do a forum search before starting a new topic - this thread your message has been moved to actually has exactly the same title as you gave yours, so it came up very quickly.

You’ll also find several other threads describing a lot about the versions if you just search using “Tintin in the Congo” as your search term, which may help you to make your decision.

I have the 2005 English edition in color. Is there anything different in the Casterman edition? Does it have the same translation? Does it have the "uncensored" killing of the rhino?
Thanks

I have the 2016/2017 Casterman edition, and I don't think there are any differences with the Egmont and Casterman editions. There is the foreword, the "censored" version of the rhino (the rhino accidently firing Tintin's gun) and the inside says it's been translated by Leslie Lonsdale-Cooper and Michael Turner, just like all the other books. There is the "collector's edition" belly-band, is in hardback (with the character gallery) and, best of all, the picture of Herge's characters (without Popol and Virginny) on an island on the back.

Thanks, snowybella! I don't have a copy of the Casterman version, so although I would have guessed it was the same version of the story and translation, I couldn't be sure!

Ah - that's definitely useful to know as a means of identification! What does it say on Tintin's noticeboard - if anything?

The noticeboard on the outside back of the book just list the titles of all the Tintin adventures, with no mention of any publishers. I think it also includes Soviets and Alph-Art, but I haven't got it on hand right now.

Thank you again!

snowybella:

My guess would be almost certainly "yes" - they are certainly part of the official series, especially since they were released in the standard format.
