Synopses & Reviews
The athletes of the ancient world assemble in Athens for the Olympic Games. Asterix and the Gauls enter too, but they're due for a setback. As an artificial stimulant, magic potion is banned. Can our friends win at the Games without it? And what's the special ingredient of the other potion, the one in the cauldron in the shed with the door that doesn't close properly?
This title is a relaunch of the re-inked, re-coloured and re-designed Asterix series, now published in the correct order for the first time.
Asterix, Obelix, and their friends have entered the famous Olympic games in Athens. Theyand#8217;re determined to taste victory, but the Gauls face formidable competition from both Greeks and Romans. Will it be a Gold Medal for Asterix? Or will he suffer the agony of defeat?
