Ten years to the day since John Hicklenton left us. Still miss the unique style he brought to Nemesis and Dredd.

Farewell, Johnny.

He saw how 2020 was going and knew when to fold 'em.

🙁 a big part of my childhood going down to the local library every week to trawl through their substantial  Asterix collection.

Uderzo was a bit of a genius - and Asterix will always, always be one of my (and possibly your) favourites.

(Stood next to Lyle Waggoner 2 years ago. 

That's the end of my Lyle Waggoner anecdote.)

Uderzo was a complete genius, and a terrible loss to the global comic book community.

I've just started a re-read of the Asterix books from the beginning.  They feel as fresh and amusing today as all those years ago.  In fact more so with an eye more attuned to the subtle jokes that layer the work.

Albert Uderzo one of the all time greatest comic artist and that's not hyperbole at all, just an artistic genius.
