    1. Brüsel is the obscure city which most obviously parallels a city in our own world, and Brüsel is the album which is perhaps most directly a satire on the ‘real’ world.The main target is ‘Brusselisation’ (bruxellisation), a term applied, in 's apposite citation, to ‘the indiscriminate and careless introduction of modern high-rise buildings into gentrified neighbourhoods’. It takes its name from the way Brussels bulldozed half of its historic heritage in the 1950s so they could ‘mo [...]


    2. Brüsel est le cinquième album (si l’on met de côté les spin-offs) de la chronique des "Cités obscures". En apparence, l’esthétique est plus réaliste, moins maniériste, que les premiers volumes : Brüsel apparaît d’abord comme une grande ville européenne de la deuxième moitié du XXe siècle, avec ses commerces, ses administrations, ses travaux et même ses panneaux publicitaires aux messages stupides.Mais, très vite, le fleuriste dont on suit l’histoire, se rend compte que qu [...]



    3. Patriotische Brüseler gegen die Modernisierung der ArchitekturDie Stadt Brüsel hat genug von der Vergangenheit - die Zukunft, plastiziert und modernisiert, ruft! Raus mit den biologischen Pflanzen, her mit Kunststoffpalmen! Weg mit den alten Stuckgebäuden, setzt moderne, klare, funktionale Hochhäuser an ihren Platz! Der ehemalige Florist Abeels will mit diesen Gedanken mithalten. Doch je länger er sich in diesen neuen Häusern befindet und sich damit beschäftigt, umso kränker wird er, und [...]


    4. The Obscure Cities is BD/Comics at its best. This deserves a place in every history, study on the subject, or even personal dive into the world of graphic novels.



    5. I have been fascinated recently to come across the work of some European graphic novelists that were completely unknown to me. Moebius is one that I have found fascinating, and this one also fits that category well. This is one of the Obscure Cities that was developed by Francois Schuiten and Bernard Peeters -- and note that I did not say that the book was developed by them. What they have done, with the help of many other people, is to develop a series of almost-but-not-quite real places that a [...]


    6. L'urbanisation galopante et absurde de Brüsel, l'administration kafkaïenne, des savants loufoques, un promoteur véreux et une histoire d'amour totalement improbableL'ensemble donne une excellente BD, centrée sur la ville de Brüsel bien sûr.La fin au cours de laquelle Tina et Constant sont bien sûr réunis, est assez poétique, une forme de poésie un peu onirique et un peu surréaliste qu'on retrouve dans plusieurs autres épisodes.Une lecture fortement recommandée


    7. I really liked the subtle link between progress in surgery and construction as if the city was a patient and as usual the great scenery and compositions


    8. Another great tale, but the intro by the author about Bruxelles was fascinating. I didn't know the history of Bruxelles in the late 180s and early 1900s. Peeters told us some history, and then he wove his illustrated tale. His tale on its own might have been too absurd. "This can't happen." Then, together with the prologue, you stop and shake your head. What is more absurd - reality or the tale. It's hard to tell! More brilliance from the team of Peeters and Schuiten


    9. Corrupted politicians use back-door influence to demolish buildings of historical interest and drain funds with a sky-scraper building program in the imaginary city of Brüsel. Half satire, half comedy.



    10. I think I've lost the taste for these. The drawings are still beautiful, but I'm not all that interested in the "mystery" - pretty often no core and/or bureacracy.
