Jean-Yves Ferri

Jean-Yves Ferri is a writer, designer, and colourist of comics known best for Adventures of Asterix. He features a Gallic investigative journalist based on Julian Assange, revealing the secrets of Julius Caesar.
"The great thing about the Adventures of Asterix is that they start from historical fact, like so many historical comics. We started with the books of Julius Caesar, and then we needed to think of a way that that story could be connected to the Gauls,"
"In our comics we are not directly interested in hot topics, we don't discuss the latest news. We are only interested in society, information and control over information, and Assange was really an inspirational character for us here. The same happened with Bonuspromoplus,"
