Front 242 featured in famous cartoon series in Belgium's quality newspaper De Standaard

(Cartoon by Lectrr) – Belgian cartoonist Lectrr, who is the in-house cartoonist for one of Belgium’s most respected newspapers De Standaard, is also a big Front 242 fan so it seems. In the newspaper of December 12th we noticed a reference to Front 242 (see the bartender’s t-shirt) in a cartoon which was about expensive Adèle tickets available via Live Nation’s own illegal re-sell company Seatwave (we covered this re-sell scandal in detail right here).

In a chat we had with Lectrr a while back it seems he has been a Front 242 fan for over 20 years, more precisely when “Up Evil” was released. As it happens he also had been thinking about a Front 242 comic, but for now, we’ll have to do with a subtle hint in a cartoon. Coincidently Lectrr’s Tsū page recently welcomed its 242th follower. Maybe that was the trigger? 🙂

You can read more about Lectrr’s work on the official Lectrr website.

For non-Belgian readers, De Standaard is a Flemish daily newspaper published in Belgium by Mediahuis and is considered to be the best newspaper published in Belgium. You could compare it to The Times in the UK which means Front 242 is in good company!
