by Rene Goscinny (Author), Albert Uderzo (Illustrator). It is almost impossible to single out one album from this remarkable comic book series, but Legionary comes closest to perfection. A masterclass in comedy to read again and again-Robin Etherington, The Big Issue.

Asterix the Legionary book. These French comics were written by Rene Goscinny, who died in 1977, and illustrated by Albert Uderzo. Uderzo continued to illustrate and write through his retirement in 2011, keeping I would venture to guess that the vast majority of European children from the early 1960s through today have read some, if not all, Asterix comic books. Probably many times over.

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 GAUL, their first album, was published in 1961 and there have now been 35 Asterix albums. Naturally, the adult needs to help with the differentiation between fiction and history.

Studying Latin? Or perhaps have a Latin student at home? At an admittedly steep price the extraordinary Asterix and Obelisk comic books are available in Latin translation which is highly appropriate given the historic context of the stories. Translated from their original French into more languages and even dialects than any other book, these comics were just the rage in Europe during my younger days. Read one and you know why. Beautifully illustrated, with great stories and fun lines on every page these books are towering above all else in comic book land. So take a break from Cicero and enjoy Latin on the lighter side. You may become a collector.

Goscinny hones his usual recipe of farce and sattire in this amusing tale that once again parodies various nationalities, but on this occasion seems to lack any deeper message. It is fun to spot the historical allusions and inside jokes however.

Our heroes manage to bend the romans to their will as usual and soon Asterix and Obelix are enjoying an expenses-paid holiday on the back of the army as they look for the kidnapped Tragicomix.

I agree that the Bell/Hockridge translations of the 70's were generally funnier however, they had more kick.

Tip: out of stock does not mean you cannot find it in other bookstores.
As a child, I read all of the "classic" Asterix books in Swedish. As an adult and now living in the U.S., I am reading them again to my children, but this time in English. This is a good classic. In Swedish, this book was called Asterix in Africa, but I read this English version to my children. As others have pointed out, the Asterix books are not very popular in the U.S., but American kids (like mine) are not much different from European kids, so I think someone is missing a business opportunity here. American kids respond positively to these books.
Asterix and Obelix live in a village in Gaul that the Romans failed to conquer. The reason for this is that the village druid knows how to make a magic potion that endows the villagers with super human strength. In this book a villager, Tragicomix, is kidnapped, and later he and his girlfriend are sold as slaves in Rome. Asterix and Obelix set out to find him and rescue him (them), but to do that they have to join the Roman army. Their search leads them to North Africa. It is an interesting and entertaining story full of lighthearted good puns. Thanks to Obelix the Roman army finally got good food.
In general I find that, children the age 5-13 really enjoy these books, and so do my children. Adults can enjoy these books as well. The Asterix comic books are a great way to teach children ancient history. Naturally, the adult needs to help with the differentiation between fiction and history. From these books, my kids have learned about the Roman Empire, the ancient Greeks, the Vikings, the Goths, the Phoenicians, ancient Gaul, ancient Egypt, and the ancient Mediterranean world in general.
My ten year old started loving these books at the age of eight and he cannot get enough of them. My six year old started liking them at the age of five. Even though many Asterix puns may be a little bit above his head, my younger son still loves these stories.
In my opinion the best Asterix albums are: Asterix and the Normans; Asterix in Corsica; Obelix and company; Asterix the Gladiator; Asterix the Legionary; Asterix and Cleopatra; Asterix and the Goths; Asterix in Belgium; Asterix and the big fight; and Asterix all around Gaul. The last title is a translation from Swedish and might be wrong.

The Asterix books are all funny, and clever in their use of language. They are for a wide range of ages. My daughter has been enjoying reading them since she was eight years old, and I still love them.
