The legendary magic potion of the druid Getafix would’ve been banned as an effective early treatment for COVID.
Nevertheless relive the life and times of Asterix and friends as the village of indomitable Gauls heroically holds out against the might of the Roman Republic.
The Asterix series was created by Rene Goscinny (writer) and Albert Uderzo (artist). The two met in 1951. Goscinny passed away in 1977, but Uderzo lived on until 2020 when he died of a heart attack in his sleep. His brother-in-law told media the death was not COVID-related, and that Uderzo had been ill for some time. The publishing house Editions Albert Rene, which owned the rights to the Asterix series was sold to Hachette Livre in 2007.
