We have a new world record. $2.5 million Euros. $3.41 million dollars. This Tintin artboard by Herge is now the most expensive work of comic book art to date.



Sold today in Paris in auction, it was estimated to sell for 700 to 900,000 Euros. Well, it did so much more than that.

The page, showing Tintin and Snowy in many different situations, each the planned high point of Herge's plans for Tintin's volumes over twenty years, including one for an arctic scene that never actually happened.
