Product Description

Review

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

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

About the Author

Rene Goscinny was born in Paris in 1926, and spent most of his childhood in Argentina, before eventually moving to Paris in 1951. He died in 1977. Albert Uderzo was born in 1927 in a small village in Marne, France. He met Rene Goscinny in 1951 and on 29 October 1959 their most famous creation, Asterix, made his first appearance on page 20 of Pilote. ASTERIX THE GAULl, their first album, was published in 1961 and there have now been 35 Asterix albums.

Better than Tintin Sept. 15 2013
By Maggie Olga - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Asterix is one of my favorite cartoon series. This was a good collection of three of the stories. While some of the continuing jokes get a bit boring, like not ever letting the Bard sing, the sly humor makes this a keeper and something I know I will reread.

Time with my baby June 1 2013

My nine year old girl and I share the love for this comic. Growing up I read and read Asterix comics over and over until the next time my abuelito will come visit with a new book. I now have introduced my book worm to it and she can't get enough!
Or more precisely, my son-in-law does. March 3 2014
By Nora R. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We recently introduced him to Asterix and Obelix, and he's hooked. It's wonderful to be able to buy them in this omnibus format, three at a time, because it not only saves shelf space (we have them all separately, and a lot of them hardcover), but it saves a lot of money, too! My son-in-law, being a barely graduated engineer, loves the shelf-space aspect, needless to say, and my daughter doesn't mind re-reading all her old favorites, either. A perfect present all round. We'll keep collecting, and adding.

For those of you unfamiliar with this French comic, it's history with a big grin---Julius Caesar and the Gauls from a whole new angle. Rather irreverent, and I'm sure the Romans could complain if they were still around, but hilariously good fun, and clean, too! Like a graphic novel about adventures in historic times, but with some of the cuteness of the smurfs and the tongue-in-cheek sarcasm of Garfield rolled into it as well, you might say. I can only recommend you find any volume and try it out (doesn't matter much which, there's a nice explanation of the background in the front of each.)
They are well written and beautifully illustrated, witty and very entertaining Oct. 4 2014

I read these comics as a child over and over again. They are well written and beautifully illustrated, witty and very entertaining. The story follows the members of a small village in Gaul whom resist the Roman Empire by virtue of a super-strengthening potion brewed by their druid Getafix. The heros of the stories are Asterix ( a short, but smart warrior) and his best friend Obelix ( a large, boar meat loving, loyal but not smart warrior whom fell in a cauldron of magic potion as a child and as a result has permanent super strength). You can read each comic seperately and be able to follow the story, though certain characters do repeat throughout the series. I am buying them again as an adult and enjoying them just as much as I did as a kid. I definitely recommend these comics.
