Asterix, the comic hero from the Roman era and the first international superhero, continues to conquer the world. With hundreds of millions of copies sold in 107 languages and dialects, not to mention 11,000 websites devoted to the character, these engagingly witty and record-breaking books have become one of the highest-selling series ever. And the phenomenon shows no sign of abating; in fact, it's spreading to other media, such as video games, CDs, and movies.
And fans of these hysterical historical tales will love this first new album in four years?now out in paper! It's a lively tale that features a falling sky, an incredible space race, and some surprising characters.
Whatever adventure Asterix embarks on, it's sure to be a blockbuster.

Great!

Great comic! Again. I knew the early stories written by Goscinny (until "Asterix in Belgium") were VERY funny, but wasn't sure about the material created later by Uderzo alone. Now that I've bought all the latter books I'm very happy with them too. Read full review
