StampNews.com is glad to inform that Belgian Post presented a new stamp issue dedicated to fictional figure Thorgal.
The issue has been already designed and is scheduled to be put into circulation on the 28th of January.
Thorgal is a Belgian fantasy comic book series by the Belgian writer Jean Van Hamme and the Polish graphic artist Grzegorz Rosiński.
It combines several themes and legends, ranging from Norse mythology and Atlantean fantasy to science fiction, and such genres as dark drama, horror and adventure stories.
The comic first appeared in serial form in "Tintin" magazine in 1977, and has been published in hardcover volumes by Le Lombard from 1980 on. Translations exist in English and many other languages.
Le Sacrifice was the fifth best-selling new comic in French, with 280,000 copies published. Several spin-off series are also ongoing.
