Tintin and Snowy travel to the Belgian Congo to report on the country's situation. Once in the central African nation, the duo get into various adventures, encountering wild animals, angry natives, and even American diamond smugglers controlled by infamous mobster Al Capone! In his portrayal of the Belgian Congo, the young Hergé reflected the colonial attitudes of the time... He depicted African people according to the bourgeois, paternalistic stereotypes of the period - an interpretation that some of today's readers may find offensive.
