8 December 2009 - 21 February 2010. The work of Hec Leemans was first published in the daily newspaper Het Volk in 1969. Leemans, best known for creating the character 'Bakelandt', has always been prolific in his output and shows no signs of slowing down; his comic strip series F. C. De Kampioenen has been adapted into a hugely popular TV show and continues to break viewing records. The Belgian Comic Strip Center (BCSC) is currently celebrating the work of this artist, who quite literally tells viewers his story in pictures. Attracting more than 200,000 visitors a year, the BCSC is one of the premier tourist destinations in Brussels. It opened in 1989 and is situated in the city centre.
