Marc Sleen created the drawings for 217 Nero comic books. This is just one series but it includes so many comic books. He achieved a world record which is officially recognised in the Guinness Book of Records. Sir Marc Sleen was also awarded a knighthood by the king. His work and career, however, are also an extremely valuable reflection of a past era. Time passes and pushes us forward, and sometimes we may feel resentful about what has been. To celebrate his centenary year, we are juxtaposing Sleen’s body of work and the universe of his creation with the world as it is today, with the changes that have taken place, with evolution. The images of yesterday sometimes clash with the values we hold dear today. Curation: Noël Slangen & Yves Kerremans with Barly Baruti & Christophe Deborsu An exhibition of the Marc Sleen Foundation With the support of the Brussels Capital Region.

The Marsupilamus Fantasii, that secret and fascinating animal, has been accompanying the readers of Spirou for several Amazonian springs by now. His first appearance dates from 1952 in the album Spirou et les héritiers. In this album, Fantasio and his horrible cousin Zantafio are in charge of bringing back a specimen of this extremely rare animal, living only in Palombia. But it is in the episode of The Nest of the Marsupilamis that the future star of comic art will definitively enter the legend. This mythical book is a real goldmine of laughter, dazzlement, adventure and discovery. To mark this bouncy anniversary, the Belgian Comic Strip Centre is organising an exhibition that will allow you to take your first steps into the Palermo jungle, literally and figuratively. In a torrid and tropical environment, you will discover fantastic original drawings by Batem, Franquin, Frank Pé, Goum... But also drawings, mythical collectors' items and settings more Marsupilamian than real life. The little ones can try to put together a Marsupilami tail in a puzzle, or discover the immersive film that is shown in the Parc Spirou. And it is not impossible that the whole family will have the idea of building their own nest on the walls of this dazzling building designed by Victor Horta, the master of European art nouveau.

The French illustrator and cartoonist Aurélie Neyret has made of the world of childhood her creative universe. After numerous illustrated books and collective publications, she made her debut in comics alongside Joris Chamblain with the series Les Carnets de Cerise, the success of which brought her recognition from the public as well as from critics. This was followed by the adventures of Lulu and Nelson, a story written by Charlotte Girard and Jean-Marie Omont. With a dynamic and colourful style, the illustrator presents endearing young heroes in search of themselves and of freedom. A sensitive and original universe that the exhibition proposes to explore and discover all its depth and creativity.

Little Furry wakes up every morning and hurries to the toilet which is far too big for him. He then hurriedly tucks into his breakfast, gives his mummy a kiss, and then briskly walks to school. To school? There is nothing more uncertain, as adventure awaits him on the corner of the street. This unchanging pattern, with different variations each time, is the invention of comic artist Pierre Bailly and scriptwriter Céline Fraipont, who have created a completely wordless comic book accessible to children from the age of 3. Highly colourful, this playful exhibition invites children to climb, jump, hide and crawl, from one panel to the next, immersing themselves in a different adventure each time, just like Little Furry.
