Belgium Youth Philately 2010 : Largo Winch

Last month the Belgian post office issued the latest edition of its annual Youth Philately stamp, featuring popular comic heroes.  The tradition started in 1979 with a stamp celebrating 50 years of Tintin, and from 1984 onwards Belgian's most famous comic heroes have graced a special stamp.

This year Jean Van Hamme and Philippe Francq's millionaire adventurer Largo Winch was selected for the stamp, which is published as a single issue and in a sheet of ten stamps with an additional illustration by Franq.
