I guess I haven't been to the Indie board for a while, because I just saw your post but it's too old to reply to.

I'm glad you found Asterix, my school library had these when I was in middle or high school, at least a dozen volumes, all great stuff. They actually made a live action movie a few years ago with Gerard Depardieu that I haven't seen.

I was going to mentions some others that I thought were French but it turns out they were all Belgian. Tintin is the first, my school also had these and I liked them. Old time adventure and treasure hunting. Spielberg made a CGI feature film a couple of years ago, it was pretty good. Tintin is a young adventurer who pals around with a salty sea captain and runs into foreign agents, jungle tribes, etc.

Another comic I really liked was called Leonardo is a Genius or just Leonardo the Genius. I think it's supposed to be Leonardo da Vinci but they play loose with history. He's got a sidekick called Lackey and they hang out in Leo's lab in Renaissance times inventing things beyond the capabilities of the era. Like one time I remember Leo making a cloning machine and making duplicates of Lackey that cause chaos. It's very Looney Tunes style humor. Leonardo's a mean ol' cuss, always chasing Lackey around with a mace threatening to bash his brains in.

Then of course The Smurfs or Les Schtroumphs or whatever they're called. I don't know how close the cartoon was to the original comic but it's probably not far off.
