Asterix and the Great Divide (Asterix S)by Rene Goscinny
Synopses & Reviews
Can there ever be a happy ending for star-crossed lovers Melodrama and Histionix, whose fathers are rival chieftains of the same village? The only hope is to call in Asterix, Obelix and Getafix to sort out the feud, the intriguing of the sinister traitor Codfix, and the military might of Rome. Watch out for some interesting new magic potions...
When a trench is dug down the middle of a Gaullish village, a mighty war breaks out between the left and the right hand sides of town. At the bequest of two young lovers, Histrionix and Melodrama, divided by the conflict, Asterix and Obelix are called in to make peace.
