Tintin auction fetches $2.4m

A Paris auction of items related to Herge’s comic book reporter Tintin, whose adventures have been adapted for the big screen by Steven Spielberg, fetched more than 1.8 million euros ($2.4 million) on Saturday.

Auctioneers Arcturial said the sale, including costs, brought in far more than the one million euros they had expected.

The 856 lots up for grabs were equally divided between recent objects and older material, including some very rare items. In all, 85 per cent of the items sold in a packed hall — via redwolf.newsvine.com
