It had a high estimate of under a million dollars. But the Sotheny auction of comic book artwork and ephemera saw this double page from Tintin And The Sceptre Of Ottokar by Herge sell for 1,563,000 Euros or $1,706,374. This is a world record price for such a double page spread of comic book artwork.
That's a lot of change, especially considering Tintin is hardly visible in it…. Other items also broke their high estimates, such as this Windsor McKay Little Nemo original page estimated at a high of $57,000, but sold for over $92,000.
