Default RIP Albert Uderzo

March 24th, 2020, 22:13
Hello everyone,

I have the sad news that Albert Uderzo, the man who was responsible for drawing the Asterix comics until a few yeas ago, has died.


May he rest in Peace.


But, I think he has found worthy successors. I do hope that there are new stories to come.

It was her complete collection of Asterix albums that got me and the missis together.

RIP.

One of the greats of the comic world, I used to really enjoy reading the Asterix books, either from my brother's small collection or from the library.

A friend of my parents had the all Asterix collection (well so far), and when I was a kid I tried many times to read the entire thing in one afternoon, as a challenge.
I must have read the first 4-5 albums like 30 times…
