Wherein I address the cries of the internet.

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

Dear Internet,

Please stop worrying about Asterix.
Whether or not we like him, Asterix is long, long dead.
So, you know, he doesn’t really care.

That was a joke.
He cares a LOT about whether or not we like him.
He’s at home crying and wiping his eyes with his crazy ass moustache every night hoping that each new tomorrow will be the day we start liking him.

And so to make both Asterix (even though he has done nothing for us) and all of you feel better, I’m going to publicly declare that we are fans of Asterix.

And before any other European comics feel slighted, yes, we also like Blacksad, Judge Dredd, The Smurfs, Lucky Luke, and virtually every other non-American comic character.

But mostly Tintin.
Nobody gets hit in the head more than Tintin.
