Excerpt: Tintin in the Congo (in the original French, Tintin au Congo) is the second title in the comic book series The Adventures of Tintin, written and drawn by Belgian cartoonist Herge. Originally serialised in the Belgian children's newspaper supplement, Le Petit Vingtieme between June 1930 and July 1931, it was first published in book form later that year. Herge would later redraw and colour the work for a new edition in 1946, and then made alterations to one of the pages for republication in 1975. Commissioned by Herge's boss, the Abbe Norbert Wallez, who ran the right wing Roman Catholic weekly newspaper, Le XXe Siecle, it was designed to encourage children to learn more about what Wallez felt were the positive aspects of the Belgian occupation of the Congo. The plot revolves around the young Belgian reporter Tintin and his dog Snowy, who travel to the Belgian Congo to report on the situation of the country there. Once in the central African nation, the duo get into various adventures, encountering wild animals, angry natives, and American diamond smugglers under the employ of famous mobster Al Capone. Following on from the success of Tintin in the Land of the Soviets (1929-30), Tintin in the Congo also proved popular with the Belgian public, allowing Herge to continue the series with a third installment, Tintin in America (1931-32). In the late 20th and early 21st centuries however, the book came under criticism for its racist portrayal of the Congolese people. It has also been criticised for its portrayal of big game hunting and the mass slaughter of African wildlife. Herge...
