The Comic Strip Festival is back in its original form from 9 to 11 September. There have been some slight changes though, and the Festival is now called... drum roll... the BD Comic Strip Festival and it is taking place at the Gare Maritime and in the Sheds at Tour & Taxis. But the paper heroes remain the same! You will find your favourite characters and authors in the exhibitions, workshops, encounters, screenings, book signing sessions and many other events for all ages. Not to mention the International Pavilion and the unmissable Atomium Prizes.

Another programme exclusive is an exhibition on Grendizer and its world. Many other surprises will be announced soon.
