The Many Faces of Albert Uderzo

I mentioned in my tribute to Alberto Uderzo that there were two books made in his honor by various BD cartoonists.

In the first book, “Uderzo Croque Par Ses Amis”, Albert Uderzo was a featured character in every story. In the second, “Asterix et Ses Amis“, he appeared more sporadically.

Enjoy this gallery of the many looks of Albert Uderzo as seen in these two albums.

  1. Also, the character of Englishman Waldo Badmington from Lucky Luke is a caricature of Albert Uderzo did you know?

    1. Waldo Badmington appears in “The Tenderfoot” the 33rd from 1968, and again in “The Klondike” the 66th from 28 years later in 1996.

    1. Ah, thanks, I’ll update that one. I’ve heard his name before, but I’m not sure I’ve ever seen his art.I just did a Google Images search and I’m impressed. Would love to see more…. Doesn’t look like Izneo.com carries anything of his, though, even in French. =(

  2. Will there ever be a Lucky Luke tribute book by other artists someday? Just like they did to Asterix 14 years ago in 2007 in honor of Albert Uderzo’s 80th birthday?
