The first nine albums were originally published in black and white, with colored editions to appear later:

  • Tintin in the Land of the Soviets (never redrawn in colour )
  • Tintin in the Congo
  • Tintin in America
  • Cigars of the Pharaoh
  • The Blue Lotus
  • The Broken Ear
  • The Black Island
  • King Ottokar's Sceptre
  • The Crab with the Golden Claws

Which books have been entirely redrawn? I can confirm that Tintin in the Congo, Tintin in America, Cigars of the Pharaoh and The Blue Lotus were, but I have no first-hand experience with the latter titles.
I assume that the books published only in color haven't been significantly modified.

Opening frames 1931 (monochrome) and 1946 (colour)

  • Thanks for the advice in posting remarks in the correct place. I initially began to write it as a comment, but the advice about comments said not to include answers there, so I was unsure of the best place to post. If you prefer I can edit my answer to explain the info found in the link. I will do this as soon as I can. – user1964 Oct 4 '17 at 11:49

  • The website link found in my comment above may help you to a partial answer, and contains links to further specialist sites. The author of this site states that there were changes made to The Crab With Golden Claws, although it doesn't sound as if it was completely redrawn. The changes include altering characters from negroes to whites or Arabs, at the request of the American publisher and removing the names of the cafés. – user1964 Oct 4 '17 at 15:59
  • You might be able to find the answer on Tintinologist.org. – Literalman Oct 9 '18 at 15:03
