"The work has been sold at 1,338,509.20 euros, costs included, by a person who wishes to remain anonymous," a spokesperson for the auctioneers, Artcurial, told the AFP news agency.
The previous owner had bought it for the previous record in the comic book field, 764,218 euros, in 2008.
Saturday’s sale was part of a larger sale of Tintin-related memorabilia, featuring work by Hergé (1907-1983), whose real name was Georges Rémi.
In February a Belgian court refused to ban the sale of Tintin in the Congo, rejecting a complaint from a Congolese man, Bienvenu Mbutu Mondondo, that it was filled with racist stereotypes about Africans.
Last year, film director Steven Spielberg released a 3D film, Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn and is already planning a sequel.
