Tintin-Drawing sold for 2,9 Million Dollars

Bei einer Auktion hat eine Original-Zeichnung von Hergé mit 34 Abbildungen Tim und Struppis stattliche 2,9 Millionen Dollar eingebracht, die teuerste Comic-Zeichnung, ever.

An original page of Tintin drawings signed by Hergé sold at auction Saturday in Paris for nearly $2.9 million, setting a new world record for comic art.

Dating to 1937, the double-page spread featuring the boy reporter, Snowy and other characters (above) was created for the inside covers of Tintin books published between 1937 and 1958. According to Agence France-Press, the piece was purchased by an American collector following “15 minutes of furious bidding” at the Artcurial devoted entirely to the Belgian artist and his most famous creation.
