Back to form with a good Arabian adventure
on 27 August 2007
Uderzo quickly redeemed himself after the awful previous book, which was the first created on his own. This is much more like the old stuff, a sure footed adventure on a mission overseas. There's lots of humour in this one without watering down the action, and some of the little plot devices are excellent. Features a spitting image of a certain famous espionage agent. Near to getting 5 stars, but the weak ending let it down.
