5.0 out of 5 stars Ever wondered what would happen if Obelix drank magic potion
The mystery is finally over. We find out what actually happens when Obelix finally gets to taste Getafix's magic potion. The result is not a pretty sight.
This is yet another classic from Goscinny and Uderzo. The story is of high adventure which takes in Gaul, Rome and legendary islands of Atlantis. There are the usual Gaul's, Romans and a guest appearance by...

3.0 out of 5 stars One of the more entertaining recent adventures
Much has been written about the decline of Asterix since the death of Goscinny. This is one of the better adventures written and drawn by Uderzo. Asterix has always been pretty fantastical (the magic potion being an obvious example).

This review is from: Asterix and Obelix All at Sea: 30 (Asterix (Orion Paperback)) (Paperback)
Much has been written about the decline of Asterix since the death of Goscinny. This is one of the better adventures written and drawn by Uderzo. Asterix has always been pretty fantastical (the magic potion being an obvious example). Uderzo's work continues to push this to the limits, as always he tries to combine as many of his brilliant ideas as possible into a single album. Obelix turns into granite, then becomes a small child, slaves revolt against Caeser (taking the mickey out of Sparticus, a maritine chase, a trip to Atlantis and the secret of eternal youth. Just one of these ideas would make an excellent story, bearing in mind that an Asterix album is just 47 pages long. All in all this is a mess, albeit an entertaining mess. A must for fans (the best album since Asterix and the Black Gold), but new or casual fans would be better of starting with the earlier books, in particular Asterix in Switzerland and Asterix in Britain.

This is yet another classic from Goscinny and Uderzo. The story is of high adventure which takes in Gaul, Rome and legendary islands of Atlantis. There are the usual Gaul's, Romans and a guest appearance by Kirk Douglas as Spartakis a Greek slave. The pictures lovingly drawn as ever and the detail is immense. The saga of Asterix and Obelix seems to go on for ever and long may it do so.

Asterix is a classic every child should enjoy his antics. The play on words used when naming the characters makes the reader think. Great fun!

3.0 out of 5 stars So-so, 13 April 2008
This review is from: Asterix and Obelix All at Sea: 30 (Asterix (Orion Paperback)) (Paperback)
Obelix drinks the magic potion, and turns into stone. The druid tries to make an antidote, which instead turns Obelix into a child. He then has to go to Atlantis in hope of finding a cure. Meanwhile, a ship full of mutineers visit the village.

This is one of the newest Asterix adventures. Uderzo has created some pretty good adventures even after Goschinny's death, and here is another interesting premise and it almost works. It's entertaining, but the resolution is something of a letdown. Recommended for fans. New Asterix readers might want to start with another book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another masterpiece from Goscinny and Uderzo, 1 Oct. 2000
By A Customer
A very funny book in which Obelix finally drinks the magic potion and is suddenly turned into GRANITE. The druid Getafix makes a potion to try and cure him but somehow makes a mistake. True Obelix is no longer granite but when he awakes from his stony slumber Obelix finds he's no longer the ginormous Gaul he used to be but now is a tiny gaul that cannot even manage three boars at a time.Then the romans capture mini Obelix as hostage and our brave hero Asterix sets out to rescue his best friend.
