Tintin is weeping for Brussels.
Following Tuesday's terror attacks, the Belgian cartoon was widely shared on social media.
Tintin's official Twitter account also weighed in.
In Belgium, Tintin is a national icon.
In the series, he's a fearless young reporter. Brussels is his hometown.
French comic artist Joann Sfar drew Tintin comforting his sidekick Captain Haddock with the caption, "Me too, Captain, I sometimes think about moving to the moon."
Another unlikely symbol of solidarity? Brussels' famous statue, Manneken-Pis.
