I think The Broken Ear has drawings similar to The Blue Lotus
I am guessing The Broken Ear was published in black and white but just not updated like The Blue Lotus

The colour facsimile of Blue Lotus is from 1946 and has the updated style. So Hergé did not wait for Cigars to redraw the pages. Not sure why he made the changes because the rest of the book is very near to the (beautiful) original drawings.

I've noticed that in "The Blue Lotus" on page 5, it changes from a redrawn art style to the old black and white art style. Was there something offensive, so the first 5 pages had to be redrawn? Can anyone answer this question I've been wondering for a long time?
