Thanks to Mekanik Strip I can separate my jawa's from my ewoks and that comes in real handy with the chicks!

Each time you take a break during lunchtime, be sure to pop in Mekanik Strip Comic Shop in Antwerp. Consider it a small heaven on earth. Ease down, search, find and read... You don't have to believe me, but even after 30 years, it's my ultimate place to pause. Hope to see you there soon.

Gallery & Workshops

In 1994 Mekanik Strip branched out and opened the first comic art gallery in Antwerp. It was conceived as a space to exhibit original comic art, paintings, prints, sculptures, and everything related to sequential art. The gallery has a permanent collection featuring works from the most important artists in the comic book industry. Quickly the gallery gained name and fame; and is now one of the leading venues for exhibiting comic art in Belgium. John Bolton, Dave McKean, Neil Gaiman, Charles Burns, Loustal, Ted McKeever, Bernie Wrightson, Liberatore and Milo Manara are just a few names of our past guests.


Aside from inviting international artists, the gallery focuses also on local new talent in the WALL OF FAME exhibitions.


The WALL OF FAME is a new project of Mekanik Strip.
We welcome young, promising, lightly disturbed and unique talent
to make a small tiny mini SOLO-exhibition in our Gallery !

One small wall – only for you – your first SOLO !
Come over and talk with us about the conditions ..
