The truth at last! The world had to know the answer to the mystery that has been keeping it on the edge of its seat for more than two thousand years. We all know that Obelix fell into the cauldron of magic potion when he was a little be ('We'll never hear the last of it!' as he often says) but we've never known how. Well, the time has come...And, given his involvement in this dark affair, we have asked Asterix to tell you everything. So, fiat lux!
Exciting new Asterix album about the childhood of Asterix and Obelix.
About the Author
Rene Goscinny was born in Paris in 1926, and spent most of his childhood in Argentina, before eventually moving to Paris in 1951. He died in 1977. Albert Uderzo was born in 1927 in a small village in Marne, France. He met Rene Goscinny in 1951 and on 29 October 1959 their most famous creation, Asterix, made his first appearance on page 20 of Pilote. ASTERIX THE GAUL, their first album, was published in 1961 and there have now been 35 Asterix albums.
The Asterix books represent the very summit of our achievement as a literary race. In Asterix one finds all of human life. The fact that the books were written originally in French is no matter. I have read them all in many languages and, like all great literature, they are best in English. Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge, Asterix's translators since the very beginning, have made great books into eternal flames.--THE TIMES A cartoon drawn with such supreme artistry, and a text layered with such glorious wordplay, satire and historical and political allusion that no reader should ever feel like they've outgrown it.--TIME OUT
