Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The path of true love never did run smooth--especially when the sweethearts' fathers have dug a ditch right through their village, dividing it in half. That's what happens to Histrionix and the beautiful Melodrama, son and daughter of two rival chieftains. So, the star-crossed lovers call in Asterix, Obelix, and Getafix to sort out the political wrangling. However, the traitor Codex, who wants Melodrama for his very own, is out to sabotage their efforts at peacemaking. Can the trusty trio persuade the village to reunite against the threat of the legionnaires? Maybe a little magic will help.

Synopsis:

This title contains more capers from Asterix and Obelix and the Citizens of Gaul.

Synopsis:

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...
