If, nowadays, we discover the adventures of Tintin as 62 pages books in color, we should not forget that the first eight adventures of our hero - in addition to the Soviets - were initially created in fl and white.
Tintin's first two adventures - Tintin in the Land of the Soviets and Tintin in the Congo - were initially published by the rather short-lived Éditions du Petit Vingtième, in a rather limited edition, since Hergé believed that Tintin's success was only a temporary phenomenon.
While The Shooting Star became Tintin's first adventure published in color, Hergé tackled the hard work of redrawing the books of pre-war period, first with the help of Edgar P. Jacobs, then of what was going to become gradually the team of the Hergé Studios.

Tintin believes Chang has survived, contrary to the reports of the rescue team, and he braves the harsh snowy mountains to find his friend.
While Tintin is the calm cool-headed type in previous adventures, always doing the right thing and keeping the others in check (Haddock is often impetuous), in this adventure he is feverishly driven to find his friend, spurred on because of a dream he considers prophetic.
