Tintin Mural at Stockel Metro Station

by admin

The Adventures of Tintin Mural located inside the Stockel Metro Station is definitely one of most impressive of the city of Brussels. The sketches featuring all of the 140 characters of The Adventures of Tintin Comic Strip are displayed on both sides of the 135 meters long underground station’s wall. These were drawn by Hergé himself just before his death in 1983 and completed by the Studio Hergé and Bob de Moor for the opening of the Stockel station on August 31st, 1988.

I'm definitely living in the wrong city, wrong country, wrong continent… This stupid little city in the middle of Brazil has absolutely NOTHING of Tintin to buy or see, except for one comic strip or another…. I wanna go to Brussels!
