BELGIUM ~Tintin special stamp cancellation~

Received a wonderful envelope with postcards from Belgian's most famous comic books "The adventures of Tintin" from hergé.The series is one of the most popular European comics of the 20th century, with translations published in more than 80 languages and more than 350 million copies of the books sold... I love the books too,I've been a big Kuifje (Tintin) fan for years....
Each postcard with a beautiful stamp and with special cancellation!!
Héééééél erg bedankt Johan!:D:D
Stamp from the album:The Black Island

Stamp from the album:Prisoners of the Sun

Stamp from the album: The Blue Lotus

Before the movie release of the Secret of the Unicorn film, Belgian Post issued a new serie of stamps. These are a chronological review of all the Tintin films made through years.
The stamps feature scenes from the 1947 Crab With The Golden Shears puppetry film, the early Belvision feature animation version of The Black Island (1961) and Temple Of The Sun (1964), and The Blue Lotus from the 1990′s TV series, set side by side to images from the books they were based upon. Also included are two shots from the Mystery Of the Golden Fleece and The Blue Oranges, the quite hilarious Tintin movies form the early 60s.
