Book Description

15 April 2004 Asterix (Book 2)
It's a disaster - the druid Getafix has broken his golden sickle. Asterix and Obelix go to Lutetia (now Paris) to buy him a new one. Soon they are tangling with the criminal underworld of the big city - can they outwit Navishtrix, Clovogarlix and the sickle-trafficking gang? Will Getafix ever be able to brew magic potion again?

4.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining early adventure. 2 Aug 2004
'Asterix and the Golden Sickle' is the second of 31 adventures published between 1961and 2001; This adventure is from 1962. Like the first book, 'Asterix the Gaul', some of the drawings are a little crude compared to the later stories, although this book is already more polished than the first book. Getafix the Druid breaks his Golden Sickle, essential for preparing the Magic Potion. Asterix and Obelix set out to Lutetia (Paris) to obtain another. Much fun is had at the expense of Parisian traffic congestion and the seedy gang controlling the black market in Golden Sickles. Obelix's cousin, Sickle maker: Metalurgix, is very amusing; His face is just like Obelix's, but on a little body. The new edition re-inks and re-colours the story. The drawings are sharper and the colours are brighter than my old (1975) copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best 25 Aug 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well you wouldn't know this was only the second in the series, as the quality of the drawing has come a long way since the first book, The Gaul, a year or two earlier. The characters look more confidently drawn and much more like the ones we came to know. And the quality of story, well this is just one of the very best, in my opinion, involving a quest to get a very important implement made for their great druid as he heads off to the prestigious Druids' Conference in the Forest of Carnutes. Has a lovely homely atmosphere because the quest takes them to Lutetia, Ancient Paris, which looks very green and lush.

5.0 out of 5 stars Asterix and the golden sickle 28 Aug 2012
By Harry 9
This is a very funny asterix book. It is all about Asterix and Obelix going to Lutia {now known as Paris} to get a golden sickle but they battle through bandits and romans to get there. A great read.
