TINTIN SETS COMIC STRIP RECORD AT AUCTION

0

PARIS: An original page of drawings featuring the intrepid boy reporter Tintin sold at auction on Saturday (Sunday in Manila) for more than two million euros, a new world record for a comic strip. The piece, dating from 1937 and signed by the creator Herge, went to an American collector after 15 minutes of furious bidding at the Artcurial auction in Paris. Experts said the sum, 2.5 million euros ($3.4 million) including fees, or 2.1 million euros without, reflects the new enthusiasm for cartoon items, which have seen prices soar in a decade.
