Albert Uderzo: Asterix co-creator and illustrator dies aged 92

Albert Uderzo, who drew the Asterix comic books, has died at the age of 92.

The books, about the adventures of Gaulish warriors fighting against the Roman Empire, first appeared in the Franco-Belgian magazine Pilote in 1959.

Urderzo took over the writing following the death of his friend and original author René Goscinny in 1977.

The series continues to this day under new ownership, with the most recent book, Asterix and the Chieftain's Daughter, released last October.

"Albert Uderzo died in his sleep at his home in Neuilly, after a heart attack that was not linked to the coronavirus," his son-in-law Bernard de Choisy told the AFP news agency.
RIP - his work was a very happy part of my childhood, and my son's.

I have the Asterix Omnibus's - 6 stories in each at time less that £10 so best way to buy them. Still love the fun and the wonderful translations to English.

The woman who did the translations died a couple of years ago too: https://www.theguardian.com/books/20...a-dies-aged-82

Asterix is considered a master example of translation as she often translated French idioms or jokes into equivalent versions in England that kept the overall meaning whilst still working well.

I.E The dog Idéfix was a French pun for meaning fixed idea was translated to Dogmatix for dogmatic. The comics were full of stuff like that.
