If the "new" album is indeed just a coloured 1930 version, my question would also be: "What's the point?"I mean, there is already a colour edition of that adventure, the 1946 version, created by HergÃ© himself.A casual reader will prefer reading that one.I assume that the original 1930 version is only of interest for the Tintin collectors?And shouldn't most collectors be interested in the original black and white edition,not a modern colourised version that wasn't approved by HergÃ© ?It's also weird that for the 90th anniversary of "Soviets" there's a special release of "Congo".Doesn't make much sense.I hope that there will be other, more interesting, releases in 2019.
EXACTLY! I said everything you just said. this is just a waste of time.

I said the samething. it doesn't make any sense at all. i can understand tintin in the land in the soviets being in colored for tintin 90th birthday. that would of make more sense to me. they doing all of this for money. i'm pretty sure Tintin in America gonna be next. poor herge.

Me too. they can be doing so much more than releasing books that already been release and not breaking hergÃ© rules.

There's already been two reprints of the standard colour edition, and the Casterman colour edition (the one I have) still seems to be in print.
Yes. that's because those books already been release. it's different then today. and yes. there's no need for them to release them again.
you see what i mean? it's just waste of time and money. there's no point to it.

That's interesting; can you tell me where you got that piece of information from? I think you might be confusing it with Soviets though, but if you are, then that's actually a rumour - in the endpapers of an original edition, you can see Tintin in his Russian costume, and if he didn't like it, then he wouldn't have drawn it there.
He's says it. it's real. he doesn't like this book because it's racist and the animal killing. he did say that he was sorry for doing the book but honestly it wasn't really his fault. it was the laws back then and he couldn't do anything about it. he doesn't like soviets or the congo.

To snowybella: it's real information. i'm not sure where i got the information from but it's real. he doesn't like either of these books.
