News: Albert Uderzo | Asterix | Je Suis Charlie

87-year-old ‘Asterix’ cartoonist comes out of retirement to pay tribute to those killed in France this week. 

“Moi aussi je suis un Charlie” (I too am Charlie)

“Charlie [Hebdo] and Asterix have nothing to do with each other obviously,” Uderzo told Le Figaro in an interview. “I simply want to express my affection for those designers who have paid with their lives.”

“Young designers are on hand now and I wish them courage,” said the artist. “They keep in mind this terrible thing came to their colleagues that no one could expect.”
