Brussels BD Festival this weekend (6th & 7th September 2013)

#1 · Posted: 3 Sep 2013 11:31
The regular celebration of cartoons and cartoonists takes place in Brussels this weekend, and Tintin is taking a major rôle this year. Events include:

· The "Tintin" Journal Car Rally - in which a parade of some 40 vehicles, selected for their appearance in a comic strip in the Journal over the years, will progress around the city, make a trip to the Hergé Museum, and then return to be judged; one car will be picked over-all winner, and put on display with the other competitors for the day.

· The Palce de Palais is to become a tent-village, with comic-shops, publishers, galleries and museums putting on displays for the fans; The Tintin Shop will be there, and you should be able to pick up a copy of the new B&W collection of Le Crabe aux Pinces d'Or strips aheaed of the official publication date.

· The Balloon's Day Parade adds a new balloon every year, and in 2013 we are promised that Tintin will make his debut, with a design based on an image from Tintin in Tibet - although, as floating is involved, perhaps it will be a levitating Blesséd Lightning?
