Record sale for Tintin drawing

Monday 5 December 2016

A rare ink drawing from the Tintin book The Explorers of the Moon has sold for a record €1.55 million ($2.34 million) at auction in Paris.

The price far exceeded expectations, maybe indicating the longstanding popularity of the author and his characters.

There are many Tintin books in the library and they remain popular here too, along with Asterix and other graphic novel series including Lucky Luke and Blake and Mortimer.

Check out our graphic novel collections in both the children's and young adult's areas for these and many other exciting books.
