An illustration of the comic book character has sold for 9.6 million Hong Kong dollars ($1.2m)

The drawing (which is not the one featured above) is from the Belgian cartoonist Herge’s book The Blue Lotus.

The work was the only original from the book still in private hands, and had been bought by an Asian collector.

The illustration can be seen in this BBC article.
