A comic strip depicting the famous boy detective Tintin has sold for a record 1.64 million dollars in Paris.

The original plate, drawn in Chinese ink, is taken from the Explorers on the Moon story by the Belgian cartoonist Georges Remi, better known as Herge.

It shows Tintin, his dog Snowy and Captain Haddock in spacesuits walking on the moon and looking at Earth.

The sale was a record for a one-page comic strip by Herge.
