Hergé's Death: Special Edition French Newspaper?

#1 · Posted: 10 Nov 2005 12:28
I have been told that a newspaper (French?) produced an edition when M. Remi died which was devoted to Tintin.
Does anyone know which paper and the date or the edition?
Many thanks!

It might be 'Libération' which illustrated every piece of news with a Tintin drawing. I guess it was the 4 March edition.

'Libération' - 6 March 1983 (no.558) edition.

I've been waiting for this thing to pop up on eBay forever...
Anybody know where I can get a copy? If anyone's interested in a trade, I've got lots of goodies.
