Asterix in Belgium (Asterix) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Who are bravest, the Belgian tribes or the Gauls? And who can destroy more fortified Roman camps? When the contest ends in a draw, and Julius Caesar is asked to adjudicate, he goes into action against both Gauls and Belgians. They unite against him, inventing fish and chips along the way. But will Caesar meet his Waterloo?

Synopsis:

What a horror! Chief Vitalstatistix has learned that Caesar has called the Belgian tribes, and not the Gauls, the bravest he knows. Along with Asterix and Obelix, the chief goes to confront the Belgians--who, to his surprise, turn out to be very like the people in his own hometown.
