However, the original stories had quite a number of racially insensitive representations of minorities – the portrayals were of questionable taste at the time the stories were originally published, but when viewed with today’s mindset, they may be seen as outright inflamatory.

And with Tintin In The Congo hitting the courts over similar issues, there are all sorts of connotations that DC may want to avoid at the moment.
The book was scheduled to be available in November, but now the book is no longer available for pre-purchase at Amazon.
The rumour is that the book has now been pulled from publication to avoid any further charges of racism.
