Reviews

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.--THE TIMES 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.--TIME OUT

This is the 31st adventures published in French and English in 2001.

With Rene Goscinny deceased, Albert Uderzo began writing as well as illustrating the series. Not as good as the first 24, sales show that they are no less popular...

A Roman actress pretends to be the beautiful Panacea (whom Obelix had a crush on in "Asterix the Legionary") in order to recover Pompey's sword and shield from Asterix & Obelix. Not bad, but not the same as when Goscinny was alive & writing...
