PARIS - Albert Uderzo, illustrator and co-creator of famous comic series Asterix and Obelix, died on Tuesday, aged 92, his family said.

Uderzo “died in his sleep at his home in Neuilly (western Paris), after a heart attack that was not linked to the coronavirus. He had been extremely tired for the past several weeks,” his son-in-law Bernard de Choisy told Agence France Presse.

Uderzo and author Rene Goscinny are known as the “fathers” of the French comic series about a small village of Gauls who stand up to Roman occupiers.

RIP. Loved each and every comic. Watched the movie and binge-watched the full boxset too. :(
