Synopses & Reviews
The wait is over: the comic hero from the Roman era who has conquered the world and sold hundreds of millions of copies is back. He's an international phenomenon and a classic.
Asterix, everybody's favorite comic character, has returned, this time in a superb collection of 14 short stories. Set in 50 B.C., these hysterical historical tales follow the adventures of the wily Gallic hero and his friends who protect their town from dastardly Roman legionnaires.
Go right back to the beginning when Asterix and Obelix were born (in the middle of a village fish fight). Find out how Dogmatix helps the village cockerel win a duel and gets adopted as a Roman mascot. Follow the bidding for the very first Gaulish Olympics, fashion trends in ancient Gaul, and Obelix's adventures under the mistletoe. Fans of Asterix will get to see him as they never have before.
"Asterix Returns" sees our favourite hero on fine form in this collection of short stories, including 10 short stories by Goscinny and Uderzo and a further 2 brand-new short stories created by Albert Uderzo.
