The second floor of the 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.
