    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.

I've downloaded the Smurfs and read some of them (it even convinced me to rewatch the old cartoon on amazon). Another one I plan on getting into once I can find more of it something called Thorgal.
