I dont think that this comic has ever been big in the states, but if you havent read one you're missing out one of the dopest comic ever.

Great drawings, smart as fuck...absolutely amazing.

PS, the original logo, dated somewhere in the 70's is still one of the dopest styles i've seen.

Asterix is the biggest comix success in the francophone world

Every child from france , belgium quebec etc begins to read it at small age, but you still can read them at adult age.

there's a big theme park Asterix in France

theres 2 Asterix movies , and the last one ( Mission Cléopatre) is one of the biggest success movie in France

 

Smart humour, fresh drawings... can't get better than this

more so than Les Schtroumpfs?

 

They certainly had a huge crossover to the english world.

I had a bunch of them them I was a little kid, I have no idea where I got them from... but they were absolutely mindblowing. A lot of my drawing training as a little kid came from copying them. It's absolute top-notch cartoon art, and the storylines kicked ass for ages... propzers magnificus.

Like every other Canadian in this thread, I read these in elementary school during library time. I would even hide them so I wouldn't have to wait to sign them out.

A fond memory of childhood.

 

 

Les Schtroumpfs.... hahaha! nice one, K7.
