TOP 500 REVIEWERon 26 February 2008
One of the very best Asterix stories, all the way back from 1967, Asterix The Legionary is strong in every department - a purposeful story, superb drawings, marvellous secondary characters and - since the boys have joined the Roman Legion in their attempt to bring back the boyfriend of Panacea, who has been recruited into the ranks - there are plenty of Romans to both bash and endlessly frustrate.

The script and names are wittily translated, as ever, into English and there are good running jokes throughout - one at the expense of a hieroglyphic-speaking Egyptian unwittingly conscripted into the army believing the barracks is a hotel, the other around characters constantly breaking down into tears. Needless to say, the journey gives the boys an opportunity to get reacquainted with their old pals the pirates on the way to Rome and again on the return journey. What more can you ask for?
