Albert Uderzo, has passed away. Shame, I liked his work.

The good news is that he will never die entirely because his characters will live in all of us and in future generations. :thumbup:

My condolences to his family and friends. :(

Very sad news! He and Goscinny were a HUGE part of my childhood and formed very much of me. Even though he was old it is still very sad news.

Sad news indeed! But as Santi says, he will live on in all his creations as Asterix, Hoempa-pa (Oumpah Pah le Peau-Rouge) and Tanguy and Laverdure. Thank you for that and Rest In Peace!

I think I will paint one figure that I have from Remco, to Honour him! ;-)

Yes this is a sad day, the comic has been taken over a few years ago so new albums will come lukely.
And as said before: he will live on in our hearts and his characters.
For me personal; I see these figures every week, so I am extra sad...

But the good news is:

This are sad news.
But I think he had his age and a full and successful life.
One more hero of my childhood has gone away.

What do you think if, as a tribute to Uderzo, we post once again our painted Asterix figures here? Here are mine.
