Auction: Banque Dessinée, Brussels

A pen-and-ink drawing by Hergé sold at auction for €300,000 yesterday.
Lot 484 shows the scene in King Ottokar's Sceptre where Tintin tugs on Professor Alembick's beard as he pretends to stumble leaving the 'plane, to find out if it is a disguise, the image was produced for use as the cover of Le Petit Vingtième, appearing on the 1st of December, 1938.
Sold by Banque Dessinée in Brussels as part of a larger sale of comics-related items celebrating their tenth anniversary, it was yet another example of just how sought-after Hergé originals are on the art market.
