Time for Asterix

In 1991, when I was the art director of Time Magazine's International Edition, 
for the cover story of France's bicentennial celebration, I had the unique occasion of hiring Albert Uderzo, the illustrator of the famous French comic Asterix and Obelix. Ironically, at the same time, a civil war started to explode in my native country Yugoslavia. That also made it on the cover.

For about the comic here:
"In 1991, Asterix and Obelix appeared on the cover of Time for a special edition about France, art directed by Mirko Ilic."
