Albert Uderzo RIP

Postby GoogaMooga » 24 Mar 2020, 16:00

Farewell to a legend. Albert Uderzo, legendary artist of the "Astérix" series, has died, aged 92. He was one of the few artists from the golden age of BD who wasn't Belgian, but rather, French. RIP Albert Uderzo

Reunited with Rene Goscinny again....between the great European tradition of la bande dessinee and satirical and very funny scriptwriting.theg were one of the best combinations.
Similar to Asterix was the series Oumpah Pah where he lampooned the English invaders in the 18th century dealing with a tribe of fearsome braves.....

A great legacy of classic books and another little connection to my childhood severed.


RIP.

And the realistic aviation classic, "Tanguy et Laverdure".

Yes!
With the help of the equally brilliant Jean Michel Charlier.

Big part of my growing up

Loved the punning names: Crismus Bonus, Dubius Status, Biggus Dickus.
