Tintin in America: Error in Tintin’s hair colour?

#1 · Posted: 13 Nov 2011 00:43
I've just been reading Tintin in America, and I noticed something.

On page 53, frame 4, you could plainly see that Tintin's hair colour is sort of a dark-blond colour. Then on the next frame (frame 5), Tintin's hair colour is yellow, then later on frame 8, his hair is dark-blond again. Does anybody know if this was an error made by Hergé or by the printer?

For King Ottokar's Sceptre the original cover was meant to have Tintin with dark brown hair, but it was changed to yellow. Accounts I've read say that Hergé meant for Tintin's hair to be yellow. So I think the error is probably the painter's.
