Everyone probably knows Bettembourg’s best-known inhabitant. He is almost 10 metres tall and lives in the “Parc Merveilleux”. Yes, it’s the sleeping giant. The colossus with a red cap, long brown boots, a light blue jumper and checked trousers. He is the emblem of the « Parc Merveilleux », opened in 1955.
A new comic strip « De Ris geet op d’Rees » is created around this prominent figure.
Just in time for the LiteraTour2022, the municipality of Bettembourg, with copywriter Lucien Czuga and illustrator Andy Genen, mysteriously awakens the giant and takes him on an eventful journey through the municipality of Bettembourg over xx pages. Readers can look forward to a story full of humour and funny characters.
The storyboard was created in advance with the residents of the municipality.
