The second floor of our Comics Art Museum brings the old Waucquez warehouse back to life. From 8 September 2023, this floor will host an exhibition celebrating 77 years of publishing house Le Lombard, in a brand new setting. Designed as a large furniture showroom, the exhibition presents 77 years of family comics. You will discover the origins of Le Lombard, its mythology, its pioneers, its poster boys, its frontiersmen and mavericks. Room by room you will discover the extraordinary richness of a catalogue first built around the legendary magazine Tintin and the graphic style so dear to Hergé, and then reinvented as society and the publishing world evolved. The exhibition offers a playful and inventive look, with never-before-seen documents, images, archives, projections and beautiful originals hidden in fake furniture. Curator: Thierry Bellefroid With the support of the Brussels Capital Region, the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles and the National Lottery and its players

Bienvenue à toi, jeune lecteur ou lectrice ! Oui, toi ! Sais-tu ce qu’est une bande dessinée ? C’est une histoire en images. Et sais-tu comment on la fabrique ? Pas vraiment, n’est-ce pas ? L’exposition Fabrika BD va te permettre de découvrir les différentes étapes de sa réalisation, ses codes mais aussi tous les métiers nécessaires pour que la BD arrive jusque dans tes mains. Pour ce voyage, tu seras avec Sam et Snake, deux meilleurs amis et personnages inventés par l’autrice de BD Karolina Szejda. Ils t’emmèneront dans le monde de la bande dessinée : de la bulle aux différents genres, en passant par le scénario et le dessin. Et le meilleur dans tout ça ? L’exposition est interactive, tu pourras participer au processus de création de la BD!

Jazz and comic books have a special connection. Several comic books took inspiration from the music in terms of atmosphere, history and iconic artists. This summer, the Comic Art Museum collaborates with the Maison du Jazz in Liege and together we present an exhibition celebrating jazz and comic art. The exhibition puts forward the Belgian creative output and the variety of styles, showing the strength and dynamism of the theme. Over the years, comic artists have written powerful stories and graphic scores in which the power of line or colour determines the rhythm and tempo. The works on display, including one by Louis Joos - renowned master of black and white - are an opportunity to rediscover these two worlds and enjoy their most beautiful melodies!
