Franco-Belgian Comics Adaptations

These live-action and animated featured films, TV movies, TV series and short films are based on Franco-Belgian Comics. The comics are created for a Belgian and French audience. These countries have a long tradition in comics and comic books, where they are known as BDs, an abbreviation of bandes dessinées (literally drawn strips) in French and stripverhalen (literally strip stories) in Dutch. Flemish Belgian comic books (originally written in Dutch) are influenced by francophone comics, yet have a distinctly different style.
