Brussels Comic Strip Center: "If people had the chance maybe they'll realise it's a form of art"
Celebrating Belgium's comic strip culture
The Belgian Comic Strip Center is a museum dedicated to Belgian comics. The building was designed by Victor Horta in Art Nouveau style and originally served as textile department store. Decades later, there was a fund of Flemish and Walloon comics artists who attempted to turn it into a museum.
