Little and large, but definitely great, Tintins of all shapes and sizes are being displayed in Paris before they go up for auction. Kids, cartoon collectors, and avid fans of the comic adventurer can all bid for their own Tintin.

After the huge success of the first Tintin auction in May, the second part offers a variety of memorabilia from large, expensive statues to small metal figurines. These smaller ones will go for around 100 euros to fit the budgets of all the fans who want a special souvenir of famous reporter Tintin.

Thibaut Van Houte, Tintin Expert, said, "Tintin crosses generations. We have readers of all ages, between seven and seventy-seven years old. It's important to remember that Tintin is well-known throughout the world. There are many translations Tintin albums have been translated in more than a hundred languages and dialects, which is very significant."

More experienced collectors will be able to find very rare pieces, such as an original drawing signed by the adventurer's inventor, Herge.

The major piece of the auction is a black and white album of "Tintin and Snowy in America," one of the few that was edited in France instead of Belgium.

Fans will be able to gather in the place that inspired Herge to create Tintin's Moulinsart castle, and events tied to Tintin's universe will be organized. ZS CCTV
