Belgium is the heartland of the bande dessinée (BD, literally "illustrated strip"), despite the fact that the French have bought pretty much all of the major publishing houses.

Mural paintings celebrate this heritage. More landmarks that one happily stumbles across. Above is one I discovered only recently, I don't even know the character's name (does anyone out there know?). More of this to come, especially if I can make it out to my very favourite, the one of Blake & Mortimer.
