Product description


As for the English adaptations of Asterix, they represent a real triumph of the translator's art. Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge have finessed every allusion and tweaked every joke, so that their cascading English verbal wit seems to come straight from the heart of the original books (Boyd Tonkin THE INDEPENDENT)

A cartoon drawn with such supreme artistry, and a text layered with such glorious wordplay, satire and historical and political allusion that no reader should ever feel like they've outgrown it...It is absurd that these wonderful books were ever out of print, and it's great to have them back (Andrew Mueller TIME OUT)

If you're new to the indomitable Gauls, our favourite is Asterix in Britain, for its wry wit lampooning the Brits (IRELAND ON SUNDAY)

There are plenty of Latin quips and snippets of Roman history, but enough low puns to make the stories as enjoyable as ever (EVENING STANDARD)

Book Description

The first album chronicling the much-loved adventures of Asterix and friends.
