Albert Uderzo, who has recent stepped down from the comic series he co-created, Asterix, is about to find his earliest work revisited.
Philippe Cauvin and Alain Duchene are currently restoring his work, from the original boards, running from 1941 until 1951, supervised by Uderzo.
The first column, published in October, will include his childhood drawings as well as:
Asterix between 1941 and 1951, from a thorough search of rare or unreleased and original boards, with the complicity of the great designer 85 years old.
The first volume published October 11, 2012 and will include the first comics by Uderzo, of his childhood drawings to Flamberge Gentilhomme Gasco, his work for OK magazine, where he created his first Gauls, and the Belgian version of Captain Marvel Junior (below). An exhibition of this work will also be on display in October at the Olbique gallery in Paris. It’s also the month that the Asterix/James Bond movie Asterix & Obelix: On Her Majesty’s Secret Service comes out.
In January, he will also be the guest of honour at the world’s most prestigious comic book convention, Angoulême, where it is expected the first post-Uderzo Asterix volume will be unveiled.
