Long Description:
[FR]

En 1991, un premier groupe de statues, située dans le quartier dit des hôpitaux, présente Spirou tenant un ballon de football aux côtés de Spip, photographiés par Fantasio.

D’autres statues ont vu le jour dans divers lieux du pays. Ces statues ont soit été offertes pour honorer un auteur de BD habitant ou ayant habité la commune, soit, comme c’est le cas à Charleroi, pour rappeler que la ville est le berceau des éditions Dupuis.

In 1991, a first group of statues, located in the district known as hospitals, presents Spirou holding a soccer ball alongside Spip, photographed by Fantasio.

Other statues have sprung up in various places of the country. These statues have either been offered to honor an author of comics living or having lived in the commune. Or, as is the case in Charleroi, to recall that the city is the cradle of Dupuis editions.
