A piece of Tintin art sold at more than double the last world record-setting price for comic book art at a Paris Artcurial auction last Saturday, one of two pieces sold for over $1 million that day. The previous world record price for comic art was also set by a TinTin piece, in 2012, (see "'Tintin' Cover Sold for $1.6 Million").
The original flyleaves / end pages for the Adventures of Tintin albums (1937) done by Herge in India ink, retouched with white gouache, sold for €2,654,400, approximately $3,582,113 US (including fees) to an undisclosed American collector. The art shows Tintin and his dog Milou (Snowy) in thirty-four different scenarios. The 35x53 cm piece was signed by the Belgian artist.
The record price for a piece of American comic art is $657,250, just set earlier this month (see "Comic Art Page Sells for $657,250").
