|Obelix, Delacoste, France, 1967|
|Gros ? tout juste un peu enveloppé|
If there is a character that represents all the "joie de vivre" of the French, this is definitely it. Big mouth, big heart and big muscles. Does not like Ceasar's soldiers very much (and they don't like him either, since they run like crazy away from them).
Dropped inside the cauldron of magic potion when he was a kid.
Sometimes wished I had that chance !

|Space Man, Schylling, China, 2000|
The fact is, during the cold war, space had to be "conquered" - instead of "discovered".
