The Centre Pompidou has acquired a page from Hergé’s The Calculus Affair, the Telegraph reports. “The strip’s inclusion was described as revolutionary by curator Laurent Le Bon, the first to point out that the centre’s 60,000 works failed to include a single comic strip, despite France’s flourishing comic art culture. ” The website shows a small image of the page acquired by the museum. As the Telegraph piece notes, the Centre mounted an exhibit of Hergé’s work in late 2006 to mark the centennial of the artist’s birth.
