Take A Tour Through The Brussels’ Comic Book Route
The Brussels’ Comic Book Route (or also The comic strip route in Brussels) is a path composed by several comic strip murals which deck the walls of several buildings throughout the inner City of Brussels as well as the neighborhoods of Laeken and Auderghem. The walls and the whole house are decorated with huge graffiti depicting popular characters of French and Belgian comics. The project started in 1991. It was initiated by the local authorities and the Belgian Comic Strip Center to honor the long history of comics, which are strongly related to or associated with Belgium.
Comic books are the pride of Belgium. It is the only country in the world where comic books are considered as an independent art form. The country is home to more than 700 comic artists. In Brussels you can find dozens of shops, monuments, graffitis, bars and museums releated to comic books.
