Tour of comic book sculptures in Brussels


The first statue representing a comic strip character was erected in Brussels in honor of Frankin. It was the statue of Gaston Lagaffe, erected 100 meters from the comic book museum.

Since then, if Gaston disappeared to be renovated, a sculpture Boule and Bill created by Roba took place in 2000 at the corner of the Avenue du Heymbosch and the Avenue van Engeland, a bust of Hergé is exposed Place de Theux in Etterbeek, commune where Hergé was born (at 34 rue de Theux) and the Smurfs created by Peyo are enthroned at the entrance of the Galerie Horta.

A second bust was made for Hergé by the sculptor Nat Neujean in 1952 and was donated by Hergé’s widow to the Belgian Comic Strip Center and is exhibited in the entrance hall while a sculpture of Tintin and Snowy is currently (January 2017) exhibited in the Train World museum, next to the train station of Schaerbeek (Brussels).
