Comic’s in Brussels

Brussels, homeland of Tintin and Spirou, the undeniable forerunners of many generations of comic strip heroes. The Smurfs, Lucky Luke and the Daltons, Corentin, Black and Mortimer (to mention only the most famous) have touched hearts of all ages in every country, tremble with fear and laugh with mirth. The clear line at the tip of a pencil, Belgian comic strip has given birth to some great names of the 9th art and its future looks bright because there’s nothing like deep roots for encouraging new talent to grow. “Speech balloons” are everywhere in Brussels.

Brussels & Beyond will lead you across the city, gazing upwards, in the company of these likeable characters, immortalized in giant format, in bookshops, other little shops, packed with pages for poring over, miniatures for collecting, engravings and lithographs...
