The Million Dollar Tintin In America Cover Is For Sale

The artwork for the front cover of Tintin In America, from the nineteen thirties, will go on sale in Paris next month, with a price expected to fetch around a million dollars.

Feel free to pose with your little finger crooked to the edge of the mouth.

And we’re back in the room. Drawn by Hergé was bought for a little under a million dollars in 2008, but is expected to go for more, specially after the recent movie.

The artwork was created in ink and oils by Hergé and is only one of five Tintin covers created this way. Only two are in private collections. This is one of them.

It will be auctioned along with three hundred other Tintin items, including artwork from Tintin In The Land Of The Soviets and the controversial Tintin In The Congo.
