event | August 29 - October 18th

Marsupilami, Gaston Lagaffe, Spirou & Fantasio, Michel Vaillant, Largo Winch, Lucky Luke, Billy & Buddy, the Smurfs… did you realise all these iconic characters came from Belgium, the kingdom of comics?


To coincide with "Once Upon a Time in Belgium", childhood characters will be taking over Le Bon Marché, appearing in window displays and on escalators and featuring on collectors' items, games for the whole family and even limited edition artworks created especially for the event.


The wide selection of collectors' comic book albums and box sets is sure to go down well with fans as well.

ACTIVITIES FOR LITTLE ONES


Le Bon Marché playtime will be running workshops for children aged 6 to 10, designed to immerse little ones in the world of comics.


A creative "L’Art du Smurf Strip" competition will also be running until 20 September. The aim? To complete a short form comic strip, started off by Peyo. Children will have to create their own story in just three frames…


On 5 September, they’ll have the chance to meet Goum, the cartoonist behind Marsupilami and create a mural together. Houba Houba!
