Tintin art sells for record-breaking €3.2m

Recommended Posts

A rare Tintin cover illustration set a new world record yesterday, becoming the most expensive comic book art in the world after selling at auction for a staggering €3,175,400 (about $3.84 million USD), according to a statement.

Tintin creator Hergé crafted the elaborate design—intended to grace the cover of his 1936 comic book The Blue Lotus—with ink, gouache and watercolors. In the tale, intrepid boy reporter Tintin and his dog Milou, or “Snowy” in English translations, travel to China, where they dismantle a Japanese spy network and bust an opium-smuggling ring. The proposed cover image shows Tintin and Snowy hiding in a large vase framed against a black background and peering out at an enormous, floating red dragon that looms overhead.
