  1. Bande dessinée

    Bandes dessinées (singular bande dessinée; literally 'drawn strips'), abbreviated BDs and also referred to as Franco-Belgian comics (BD franco-belge), are comics that are usually originally in the French language and created for readership in France and Belgium. These countries have a long tradition in comics separate from English-language comics. Belgium is a bilingual country, and a few comics originally in the Dutch language (stripverhalen, literally "strip stories", or simply "strips") are part of bandes dessinées culturally; these BDs are almost always quickly translated to French and concurrently sold to the French-reading audience, however. Among the most popular bandes dessinées that have achieved international fame are, among humorous BDs, The Adventures of Tintin (Hergé), Gaston Lagaffe (Franquin), Asterix (Goscinny & Uderzo), Lucky Luke (Morris), and The Smurfs (Peyo). Well-regarded realistically drawn and plotted bandes dessinées include Blueberry (Charlier & Giraud, aka "Moebius"), Thorgal (van Hamme & Rosiński), XIII (van Hamme & Vance), and the creations of Hermann.
