A page of original Tintin artwork from Herge's Explorers on the Moon has sold for $1.6m at Artcurial in Paris.

Tintin Explorers Moon
This classic panel from Herge's Explorers on the Moon headlined a sale of comic art in Paris

The piece had originally been valued at up to $956,880.

It's the latest in a string of high-profile auctions of Herge art. Last year a double page spread from King Ottaker's Sceptre made $1.7m.

The comic book art record is $3.4m, held by a set of Herge illustrations used as the inside cover in a series of Tintin books published between 1937 and 1958.
