tintin fire escape mural

from tintin, hergé posted in comic books by nevereatshreddedwheat

A five-story-tall scene from The Adventures of Tintin showing Haddock and Tintin on a fire escape is painted on the side of a building on Rue de l'Etuve in Brussels. It's located just down from the Manneken Pis sculpture, Brussels' famous landmark of a young boy pissing into a fountain.

The mural was painted in 2004 and comes from The Calculus Affair (#18 in the The Adventures of Tintin series), a 1950s cold war detective story about a sonic weapon of mass destruction.
