Tear Jerker / Asterix

Go To


  • In the lower left corner of the last panel of Asterix in Belgium, a passing rabbit is sadly looking at René Goscinny's signature—Goscinny died during the making of that book.note 
    • At one point in Asterix in Belgium it starts to rain and remains grey and overcast for the rest of the album. It is treated as a joke about the Belgian weather, but in Real Life the beginning of the rain marks the point where Goscinny died.
  • Another example: Uderzo drew this sad picture of the main trio in mourning, to honor the memories of the victims of a brutal terrorist attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo's office in January 2015. This drawing was also made in 1977 as a response to Goscinny's death.
  • Albert Uderzo, Asterix's co-creator and longtime artist from its inception until his retirement, passed away on March 24, 2020.
