Albert left us today... "Astérix" was certainly the first comic I read and his generous curved drawing style had a big impact on my way to draw. Rest in peace.

@davidrevoy I never really read the comics but i remember watching many of the cartoons in french when i was a kid. Get the itch from time to time to watch them again. Gonna have to for sure now.

Interesting social side-note here these days.
It is not the first one where I see in a Wikipedia article about a person recently passed away something like: "...the heart attack was not linked to the coronavirus pandemic"

Pour ma part, je me rappelle aussi les avoir lu petit, et continuer à les lire en grandissant, en découvrant avec plaisir tous les gags et les jeux de mots qui m'étaient passés au-dessus quand je n'avais pas l'âge de les comprendre :)
Ces gens-là ne meurent jamais vraiment.

RIP :( I've been meaning to reread all the classic Asterix albums for a while. another reason to now. Thanks for all the laughs and the good times Uderzo!

@davidrevoy :blobcatheart:

Savez tu que le personnage préféré d'Uderzo était Obelix ?
Quelque part ce personnage était plus à son image.

@davidrevoy My goodness, I didn't realize he was still alive! My father used read him as a child!

My sympathies for your loss

@davidrevoy I loved asterix & obelix as a kid, sad news...
@noyoushutthefuckupdad @davidrevoy @guizzy
@coolboymew @mangeurdenuage

I'm not sure yet. I'll let Guizzy and CoolBoyMew and MDN decide since they'll know all the good ones.
@noyoushutthefuckupdad @ooignignoktoo @davidrevoy The cartoon Asterix & Cléopatre is the one I like most, it has the best songs. The live action of the same is good too.

@davidrevoy It was sad to see him and his legendary series, but I unfortunately didn't read the entire pages on it since two decades ago.
