Asterix the Gaul must be Europe's favourite comic book hero.
Asterix the Gaul is the inspired creation of Rene Goscinny, renowned author of several several short stories and comics (Lucky Luke, Isnogood, to name but two of his most successful), and Albert Uderzo, a highly talented comic book artist.

 Going for Gaul: 40 years of Asterix | LRB essay | Guardian Unlimited Books
Asterix and the Actress by Albert Uderzo, translated by Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge.
Before Goscinny's death Uderzo had never taken much part in the writing and to judge from his latest, Astérix et Latraviata (translated into English as Asterix and the Actress), the answer to the big question would be a disappointing no. The satire is stale.
