French comic-book artist, who created Asterix with the writer René Goscinny, dies at home ‘from a heart attack unrelated to the coronavirus’
His comics (masterfully supplemented by Goscnini's writing) were some of my favorites when I was a teen. So many social messages and satire hidden in them, while at the same time offering me ample laughs and entertainment. He will be missed. Haven't read his work for many years, but I always remembered it now and then, and the laughs that came with them.
RIP, Albert. And thanks.
