Asterix illustrator

Albert Uderzo, the French illustrator behind Astérix​ and Obelix has died aged 92. His cause of death is unrelated to the coronavirus. Rest in peace and thank you for the fun.

Sad news indeed. My all time favourites are Mansions of the Gods, and Asterix in Switzerland.

They recently made a film version of Mansions, computer animation, worked quite well.

Of course if I had an Imperial Roman army they would have to wear green tunics

Asterix the Legionary was the first book I borrowed from school library when I was a fist grader.  It’s still the best one.
