If you are a fan of tales of underdogs standing up to overlords… if you are a fan of slightly twisted history combined with some truly excruciating puns… then do we have a gift for you!
Taking place in the days of the Roman Empire, there is one indomitable little village in Gaul that holds out against Roman rule, protected by a man whose height barely reaches a centurion’s elbow. This plucky little warrior is Asterix, who along with his best friend Obelix the menhir salesman and Obelix’s faithful canine companion Dogmatix has adventures that span the globe, but who always comes back home to the village feast.
This series of album-sized graphic novels has more than thirty volumes, each of which stands alone. You won’t be able to contain your mirth at the antics at home in the village and abroad. Meet Fulliautomatix the blacksmith, Cacofonix the bard, Getafix the druid, Impedentia the chief’s wife, and a score or more of others, including famous persons such as Cleopatra [who has “a very pretty nose”].
Pick up your copies of the ASTERIX tales, and as always, thank you for making our shelves your destination.
