Tintin Comic Book Cover Fetches Record Price print
June 4, 2012

Almost HUF 400 million (EUR 1,34 million) was the price someone paid for a rare 1932 cover drawing of Tintin comic book, thus making Tintin the most expensive comic book character so far. The previous owner acquired the "Tintin in America" cover painted with Indian ink and gouache only 4 years ago (already for a record-breaking price). The cover was painted by Belgian comics artist Hergé to the first edition of Tintin in America, and it is one of only five covers of such artwork that remain. Tintin is among the most popular comic book characters: more than 230 million copies of his adventures - translated into 80 languages - were sold, and he "starred" in films, too.

Some of Tintin's adventures can be purchased in the web shop of Hungaropress!
