Their effects can be truly hair-raising......

    A kindred spirit... Family portrait. Sport/recreation/favorite pastime. ========= For those not familiar with the Asterix comics, let me give you a bit of background, both personal and general. Let me start with Julius Caesar. We all know him, eh? And most of us ...

    another UPDATE at bottom I got this over Christmas 2014, when I saw some lying in a book store. There are (according to a list inside the front cover) 33 Books available in English translation, available singly or in Omnibus editions of 3 Books each. I glanced at it, browsing...

    +++ BREAKING +++ (Berlin) Is this the end of the indomitable Gauls? Ehapa publishing house announced on Wednesday, that all volumes of the popular Asterix series of author Ren Goscinny and illustrator Albert Uderzo will be immediately removed from trade. The publisher responds t...

    Well, *have* you read all the Asterix books? It's a fair question. We've read these, but these aren't all. There are, in fact, at least 8 not identified here. Quick quiz Asterix fans - can you name them without resorting to internet memory? [image error] I had the tremendous good f...

    Ah! Asterix and his picturesque little village in Gaul with its stubborn yet hilarious bunch of residents gave me such a heavy dose of enjoyment during my high school vacation days. Each volume of this series is supremely rich in wonderful cartoon sketches, lots of humor and superb...

    This is a goody from my childhood that I haven?t read in years. I guess I felt a little sentimental picking this up. The Asterix & Obelix comics started being published in 1959 by French authors Rene Goscinny, Albert Uderzo and Jean-Yves Ferri. Since then over 30 books in this...

    By Toutatis! Everyone should read this beginning book of a brilliant series! There are only a very few characters in this book, and the village crowd have not yet appeared. We only meet Asterix, Obelix, Vitalstatistix, Cacofanix and Getafix. But we get to meet the Romans and Julius...

    Of course I've read all of these as a kids, in Dutch. I even read a couple in Latin whilst in high school (yes, the adventures of Asterix are available in Latin, just like several other comic books. You can even read Harry Potter in Latin...) I must say, I had a bit of difficulty ad...

    Oh man. I grew up reading these. Facts gleaned from Asterix still probably constitute the majority of my admittedly scant knowledge of European geography and history. Vitalstatistix! Cacophonix! Whoever did the translations was a genius. ...

    Asterix was where I first started reading comics. My dad had them, and they seemed cool...I remember it was so long ago that they put out a new one with the Original Goscinny and Uderzo, and it was a big treat, a Father's Day present for him. This is where it all starts. The art imp...

    Asterix the Gaul This is the first volume of the comic stripes Asterix. It is quite impressive despite being the early chapter. The plot is centered on the indomitable Gauls as they withstand the Romans (Julius Ceasar) in 50 B.C. The Gaulish people are invincible because of a p...

    The first Asterix album 14 April 2012 Now that I have the complete Tintin collection I decided that I would get my hands on the other comic book series that I liked as a child, which surprise, surprise, was Asterix. I am sure many of you already know the premise behind Asterix, bu...

    Asterix is definitely one of my favorite comic book series of all time. I've only come to like the albums more as I grow older, and seeing as I reread them at least once a year I thought it only right that I take a shot at reviewing them as well. Keep in mind that I read the Swedish ed...

    Eine haarige Angelegenheit Manchmal fllt es einem Rezensenten schwer, die richtigen Worte zu finden. Mir geht das bei Bchern so, die ich schon so lange kenne, dass man denkt, alles wurde darber schon gesagt - und die Astrix-Reihe ist so ein Fall. Wer kennt es nicht, wer hat es...

    Brilliant! This very first volume of Asterix is so very funny, and it is like a taste of what is coming with this series: lots of humour, cunning characters and a crude depiction of some of the best and worst psychological characteristics of humanity! Definitely worth reading this s...

    Asterix the Gaul is the first book of a series that took comics to a new height. Since I have read it after enjoying a few others in the series, it is difficult to make an unbiased review of it. However, with the benefit of hindsight it may be said that the characters have 'arrived', b...

    Years ago my dad bought the entire collection of Asterix and I had read most of them. Even though I remember the plotlines and the hilarious names, rereading is just as much fun! There is never a dull moment and the situations are so excessively hilarious that I find myself shutting th...

    One of my favourite comic series of all time. This series really increased my love of history. Like the Tintin reread I'm doing I will also endeavour to read all the Asterix books once again. Unlike Tintin the early Asterix comics are much more accessible. There is no blatant racis...

    You haven't met Asterix before? Shame on you. Don't you know that Asterix is so famous he becomes the French farmer facing down the Roman Mickey D's? Yes, the story is simplstic, but all the things that make Asterix great are here. The punning names, the silly plot, the smart Gauls,...

    Asterix the Gaul This is the first volume of the comic stripes Asterix. It is quite impressive despite being the early chapter. The plot is centered on the indomitable Gauls as they withstand the Romans (Julius Ceasar) in 50 B.C. The Gaulish people are invincible because of a p...

    Asterix the Gaul is the first book of a series that took comics to a new height. Since I have read it after enjoying a few others in the series, it is difficult to make an unbiased review of it. However, with the benefit of hindsight it may be said that the characters have 'arrived', b...

    Years ago my dad bought the entire collection of Asterix and I had read most of them. Even though I remember the plotlines and the hilarious names, rereading is just as much fun! There is never a dull moment and the situations are so excessively hilarious that I find myself shutting th...

    One of my favourite comic series of all time. This series really increased my love of history. Like the Tintin reread I'm doing I will also endeavour to read all the Asterix books once again. Unlike Tintin the early Asterix comics are much more accessible. There is no blatant racis...

    You haven't met Asterix before? Shame on you. Don't you know that Asterix is so famous he becomes the French farmer facing down the Roman Mickey D's? Yes, the story is simplstic, but all the things that make Asterix great are here. The punning names, the silly plot, the smart Gauls,...

    Well, *have* you read all the Asterix books? It's a fair question. We've read these, but these aren't all. There are, in fact, at least 8 not identified here. Quick quiz Asterix fans - can you name them without resorting to internet memory? [image error] I had the tremendous good f...

    By Toutatis! Everyone should read this beginning book of a brilliant series! There are only a very few characters in this book, and the village crowd have not yet appeared. We only meet Asterix, Obelix, Vitalstatistix, Cacofanix and Getafix. But we get to meet the Romans and Julius...
