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. (Andrew Mueller, TIME OUT)
The Asterix books represent the very summit of our achievement as a literary race. In Asterix one finds all of human life. The fact that the books were written originally in French is no matter. I have read them all in many languages and, like all great literature, they are best in English. Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge, Asterix's translators since the very beginning, have made great books into eternal flames. (Giles Coren, THE TIMES)

And how wonderfully enjoyable this re-acquaintance - after a separation of approx two decades - is proving. The three stories collected here, Asterix The Gaul, Asterix & The Golden Sickle, and Asterix & The Goths still enchant, delight and amuse. They appear to have been somewhat updated: in Asterix The Gaul it looks like the artwork itself has been redrawn, and across all three the translations - names and puns - aren't 100% as I recall them.
But despite the very slight changes, the key thing is, for me, that these remain as delightful to me now as they did when first they charmed me, which is going back over three decades now! I look forward to extending my (re)collection!
