Tintin: The Black Island Cover Art To Hit A Million Dollars

51pNBdmgTXLAnother Tintin cover will be auctioned May 24th  by Parisiene auction house, Arcturial.

Previously, one cover had sold for $1.6 million. The new auction is for the famous Black Island cover. It's possible the estimates below may be a little on the low side.

The inked line art and color guide (created by Hergé himself) will be sold separately.

The line art is estimated to sell from $825,000 to over a million while the colour guide alone is expected to sell for over $120,000.

But, since this is Tintin, anything could happen…
