    Oh no... :(

    Asterix was a big part of my life, growing up. I have a huge stack of Asterix books and I still read them. Sadly, the sucky Canadian-published editions are starting to fall apart because they were so poorly put together. My brother, who got a degree in French, has an even bigger stack, all in French, of course. lol.

    RIP, sir...

    I loved Asterix as a kid, reading the books I checked out from the library along with Tintin albums. As I grew older, I became a bigger fan of Tintin over Asterix but I'll always have fondness for Asterix from my childhood.

    Rest in peace, Albert Uderzo. :(

    Houston, we have a problem...
    I never had any of the books but, I had seen some of the individual pieces and they always reminded me that humor can transcend language.
