The tour comprises an important selection of great European comic masters such as Hergé, with a fantastic 1930 double page from Quick and Flupke (estimate: €90,000-100,000), Hergé’s first series published between 1930 and 1969; and a sketch for the 1957 calendar of Le Journal de Tintin featuring the 12 main characters of The Adventures of Tintin dancing a sarabande (estimate: €110,000-120,000).

The creators of celebrated heroes like Astérix, Blake & Mortimer, Corto Maltese, Spirou and Fantasio, the Smurfs and Blueberry will also be exhibited during the tour. Finally, modern authors will be present, including Moebius, Bilal, Vance, Rosinski, Guarnido and Loisel. These two exhibitions (in London and Amsterdam, free and open to the public) are a fantastic opportunity to rediscover heroes of the 9th art.

A special section of the sale and tour will focus on the comic author Jean-Pierre Gibrat. It marks the first time that Christie’s Paris devotes an auction catalogue to a contemporary artist. 17 full comic pages and original drawings chart the carrier of this master of the 9th art.
Gibrat will be present in London and in Amsterdam to take the public through his work, and tell the success of his main series, Le Sursis, Le vol du Corbeau and Mattéo.
