Everyone's Favorite Fighting Frenchman: A Tribute To Asterix
Today marks the anniversary of one the most beloved European comics characters of all time, the great Asterix The Gaul, who made his first appearance on this day in 1959, created by René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo. Asterix --- and his dimwitted but kindhearted companion Obelix --- is undoubtedly one of the most popular comics characters throughout the world, and he's brought joy to people of all ages for the better part of a century.
