Created in 2005 in Brussels, Banque Dessiné (a play on words from Bande Dessiné, the French term for comic strip) specialises in the sale of comic strips at auction and rapidly has become a point of reference in its field. Their 46th public auction (09-25-2016) and the faithful attendance of collectors are strong testimony to their expertise. Each sale, in fact, resembles a happening, with bédéphiles or comic strip fanatics gathered around everything and anything to do with comic strips: albums, silkscreens, enamelled plaques, original story boards or objects in 3D.
The Comic Strip Festival is the occasion to exhibit some major creators through their legendary albums, as well as their original boards, drawings, 3D objects.
Knowledgeable comic strip experts also will be present to guide you and respond to any questions that you might have, such as: how to recognize an album worthy to be included in a collection or how to identify the criteria that make it possible to establish the value of an album.
