** Even earlier in Asterix and the Goths, when the druid is captured and starts swearing this way (the footnote explains that these are ancient Gaulish swear words which they refuse to translate). The Goths runs into an ObstructiveBureaucrat and start swearing, and we get the vaguely-Germanic font symbols, with the footnote giving their translation: the same still-untranslated Gaul symbols.

* The Swedish comic ''91:an'' uses this all the time. However, it tends to get pretty colorful with the symbols with some almost coming off as more risque than most swears.
