5.0 out of 5 stars By Toutatis!, 8 Aug 2011
This review is from: Asterix Omnibus 1: Asterix the Gaul, Asterix and the Golden Sickle, Asterix and the Goths (Paperback)
Asterix made his first appearance over 50 years ago in a little known French comic, and the indomitable little Gaul is still fighting strong to this day. In this collection Albert Uderzo and the late Rene Goscinny present his first ever adventures: Asterix the Gaul, Asterix and the Golden Sickle, and Asterix and the Goths.

Each adventure is fun to read, but by far my favourite is Asterix and the Goths, where the Gaul and his huge friend (and part time Menhir deliverer) Obelix go to Germania and cause havoc. Every tale is wonderfully illustrated by Uderzo, while the prose by Goscinny manages to cram in plenty of puns, wordplay, and satire - much of it aimed at France's neighbours.

Long time fans of the series, including adults who have long since lost their childhood versions of the books, might be tempted to get these brilliant omnibus editions; but I'm also sure that children and newcomers will enjoy these tales as well, as they haven't dated much despite their age.

By Toutatis, you'll have some fun with these stories!

Indeed. These stories are excellent and pretty much timeless. I remenber these from my childhood. I remember taking them from my local library every week until I had read them all. As soon as I saw that they were all available I took the opportunity to buy them all. I enjoyed re reading them and now they are there for my daughter to read. Great stories and well worth taking a look at.

To be honest, I upvoted this review before even reading it, just for the "By Toutatis!" review title. But the review was excellent too. ;-)
