Original Tintin art for $442,000

Friday, March 28th, 2008

It’s an oil painting of the cover art for Tintin in America, done by the hand of HergĂ© himself and it goes on sale tomorrow.

There are a lot of pictures missing, I regret to say, but the auction catalogue is a sight to behold for anyone interested in European comics.

I recognize several of my favorite Tintin covers, which means the cover art was consistent for quite a few decades, mainly after the first couple of printings.
