Brussels loves TinTin!


Before I visited Brussels I had no idea the city had a love affair with comics.  Not so much the DC and Marvel type of superheroes, but comic strips of the type seen 100 years ago.

The most popular character seemed to be TinTin,  whose likeness we spotted many times around the city  He's an intrepid reporter who first appeared in 1929.  Accompanied by his faithful pouch, Milou, TinTin has adventured around the world.

Brussel has a Comic Arts Museum which we didn't have time to visit, but I think would be quite interesting to explore.
