PARIS, November 19 (Reuters) - A board original a album of the adventures of Tintin was sold at auction Saturday in Paris for a total of 1.55 million euros, including fees, has announced the house Artcurial, which organised the sale. This board with ink and gouache, from the album "We walked on the moon," published in 1954, is the hero of Hergé, his dog Snowy and captain Haddock, all clad in a diving suit in space, treading the lunar soil. It was estimated before the sale between € 700,000 and 900.000 euros. The original drawings of Hergé, always popular with collectors thirty-three years after the master's death, the belgian clear line, reach auction record-breaking prices for works by comic strip. Last April, the double a final page of "Ottokar's Sceptre" belonging until then to the singer Renaud has been awarded to 1.046.300 euros. (Simon Carraud)
