'Asterix and the Big Fight' is the 7th of 31 adventures published between 1961and 2001; This adventure is from 1966. Set in and around the village, Chief Vitalstatistix is challenged to single combat for control of the Gaulish village. Druid Getafix has lost his memory and cannot brew the magic potion. Highlights include the boxing match between Vitalstatistix and Cassius Ceramix; The very funny attempts to brew magic potion by random chance; The unfortunate Roman spy Infirmofpurpus and his accompanying Owl (who thinks he is a tree); The patient of Druid Psychoanalytix who thinks he is Napoleon. This is a good story, presented in a new re-inked and re-coloured edition. Tidied up in this edition are inconsistencies in Vitalstatistix's clothing and a general polish of ink and colour.
