The Cigares cover you refer to shows Tintin peeking out from behind an Egyptian pillar and was only used for that 1942 edition.
There's an interesting anecdote for the 1942 Cigares in Tintin: Noir sur Blanc; it says that Hergé regretted he chose the colour fl for the title because the word “Du” had become illegible in front of the Egyptian pillar.
I'm not sure when the Destination Moon cover first appeared in Cigars but it might have been partly because none of the adventures prior to Cigars (Soviets, Congo and America chronologially) were available at the time in some countries.

As for "Cigars of the Pharaoh," if your understanding of human history leads you to believe that the Pharaohs did not smoke cigars, then you already have a leg up on the fact that this adventure of Tintin is not what it seems.
From an Egyptian tomb filled with cigars, to floating in an coffin on the Mediterranean, to wandering the Arabian desert, to being lost in the jungles of India, Tintin does some major traveling to solve this particular mystery.
Herge certainly shows more of an understanding for various cultures than he did in the previous Tintin adventure, but the overall improvement of "Cigars of the Pharaoh" over "Tintin in America" is pretty noticeable and quite impressive when you think of the state of comic books stories in the early 1930s.
