Comic books appeared in Belgium in 1920s. Already then they had their own distinctive “Belgian style”. Which is a lot of political satire transformed into funny adventure stories.
Herge became one of the admitted masters; he was the creator of Tintin. Adventure stories became popular; their sales figures in over 50 countries all over the world were insane.
“Lucky Luke”, also an incredibly popular comic book, was created in Belgium as well.
The cute blue creations, the Smurfs, that have conquered people’s hearts all over the world, were the work of another Belgian artist 0 Pierre Culliford.
With time, comic book heroes started to appear on the city’s walls and facades, and the streets of Brussels were filled with motley colors.
Soon, even the most dull walls, bridges and tunnels became bright and colorful. The realization of the project goes on, and Brussels is turning into a real “Comic Museum in the Open Air”
