A plank original of The shooting Star of Hergé, creator of Tintin, will auction on Saturday in Paris at Artcurial during an auction dedicated to comics. Estimated to be between 170,000 and 200,000 euros, the coin shows Tintin and Haddock on board the Aurora, the ship that sails on the ocean to the mysterious Star.
It is time to move on to the table. The menu is extensive, as the chef offers a sauerkraut (without the sausages stolen by Milou!). A storm comes up. The scholars invited to the captain’s table do not feel in their plate. In the last box, there no longer remains at the table as Tintin and Haddock, who says philosophically: “In a few days, they will be used…”.

The board has been carried out with China ink on paper. It was made by Hergé at the time of the transition to the color and the overhaul in the 62 pages of Tintin’s adventures. This change forced Hergé to revise the format of its planks, which were now to be of rectangular format in four strips. But, careful, Hergé keeps track of the old format to the Italian in three strips for a possible publication in a daily newspaper abroad. This is one of those boards, so-called “security”, which is offered for sale, made by Hergé in 1941-1942.
