Good story . If you want to visit where this story is based , go to Alesia museum in Alise-Sainte-Reine, France . There is a Roman museum & reconstructed fort & you can learn all about Versingetorix . There was an Asterix exhibition too when we went - wonderful .

I don't think anybody actually needs a review. 5 stars says it all. There will never be a better series of books.

'Asterix and the Chieftan's Shield' is the 11th of 31 adventures published between 1961and 2001; This adventure is from 1968, although it was not published in the UK until 1977. It is a minor story, set alongside classic adventures around its publication date. Asterix and Obelix set out to prevent defeated Gaulish leader Vercingetorix's shield being used in a triumphal parade by Julius Caesar. This story is told with a backdrop of Chief Vitalstatistix slimming himself down at a health farm, after too much overeating. In essence, this adventure is about a 'wild goose chase' looking for this special shield. Five punch-ups with Romans; 4 episodes of hiding in or searching Charcoal jokes; Numerous quaint references to the Auvergne region of central France; Much fun made of health farms and dieting. This re-inked and re-coloured edition has rather washed out colours, and does little to better the 1977 UK version which was itself rather crudely inked and coloured. In the scheme of things, this adventure rates as merely ok. One of the more average of the Goscinny & Uderzo Asterix adventures. This is the last slight blip for a while, as the next 6 years output (the next 10 or so adventures) vary between being good and outstanding.

It seems a bit of an excuse for a pub tour this one, however it has a nice feel throughout, and they do some detective work. Great artwork and some lovely depictions of pastoral landscape imagined as it would be two millennia ago.
