Tintin cover auctioned for $1.6 Million

Tintin original auctioned for $1.6 million

The BBC reports that a rare 1932 Tintin comic book cover was auctioned off in Paris for a record 1.3 million Euros ($1.6 Million US).

The Tintin in America cover, hand-drawn by Belgian writer and illustrator Herge, broke the record – set by the same item in 2008, when it sold for 764,000 euros.

It shows the young adventurer Tintin, dressed as a cowboy and sitting with his dog, Snowy, as axe-wielding American Indians creep up on them.

Story notes that there are only five remaining works by Herge and two are in private collections.
