Comic book artist Albert Uderzo has died aged 92. Famous the world over for his work on the Asterix series of comic novels, Uderzo paired up with writer Rene Goscinny in 1951. They had their break in the Tintin magazine, before releasing the first Asterix book in 1961. The pair produced 24 books before Goscinny’s death in 1977, including the great Asterix in Britain, where the British stop fighting at weekends and in the evening to have cups of hot water. Doesn’t sound familiar. Uderzo continued writing Asterix books until his retirement in 2011.
He was picked by three teams, including TOETAG4U, their 4th hit in a month.
