I read in the news today that at the age of 92, Alberto Uderzo passed away from a heart attack. He and René Goscinny brought us Astérix and Obélix, those zany and funny Gauls, and a variety of Roman officials like Nebulus Nimbus: all victims of bad Latin.
Please raise a glass or a smile to the man who drew them all: Alberto Aleandro Uderzo. A Frenchman of Italian ancestry.
We first read his books in 1969, and I've been laughing at them ever since. And so have my kids.
