While en route to a client meeting near the Gare du Nord in Brussels, I noticed a rather peculiar use of comics.
Near one of the many pedestrian stop lights, somebody had posted the February, 2022 edition of the Gazette du Feu Rouge, or Red Light Paper. According to its byline, it’s a “sheet of more or less interesting information for pedestrians while they have to wait”. In this issue, the paper bewails the often sorry state of Brussels sidewalks, where treacherous puddles hide beneath loose pavement stones.
No information on who made this, but the art style at least highly reminded me of underground cartoonist Jean Bourguignon.
And while we’re at it, thank you for waiting.
