Belgian comics stamps 2009
Leave it to the Belgian Post Office to keep you in the dark on what they're going to be publishing this year until you stumble across a very unprofessional pdf document buried deep in their website.
But anyway - not a lot of comics-related material, or so it would seem. June sees the yearly Youth Philately issue, with Roger Leloup's Yoko Tsuno (one sheet of 10 stamps, announced for June 26th). Then on October 5th a special commemorative sheet is planned on the 20th anniversary of the Brussels Centre de la Bande Dessinée.
Possibly of interest is a series on great composers, with portraits by cartoonist and illustrator, Jan de Maesschalck (later this month).
