I'm a TinTin man myself, you can't beat a bit of colonial racism to make you feel young again. However I like everyone else voraciously lapped up all the Goscinny/Uderzo books as a kid, and I am glad that somehow this tradition can live on. I hope they don't shit all over it but I'd imagine all of France would kill them them if they did so.
Thanks for the download meme. It looks a good read.
I have a box of Asterix lead figures from about 1986, still unpainted in the box. Asterix, Obelix and the pirates including that black guy in the crows nest with the big lips.
Damn there goes that colonial racism again..
