Recently, during a trip to Brussels, I visited the Belgian Centre of Comic Strip Art; three hours later and I was finding it extremely difficult to leave. I loosely divided my time between the three floors and yet I still feel I could have donated...More

This is a decent museum of comic strip art. It begins with a good history of comics. I also enjoyed the small exhibit on Hergé, although I would have preferred to see more about him and his most famous creation, Tintin. The Posy Simmonds Retrospective...More

This is a museum visit that I actually enjoyed. A nice, cool space for some fun and learning. Some of my favourite bits include the evolution, if I may say, of comic design through the years.
