Every one of the Asterix stories refers to a decisive moment in Obelix’s life: when he, as a six-year-old boy, fell into the Druid’s cauldron of magic potion. As a consequence of this accident, he developed phenomenal physical strength. But what actually happened? How did Obelix make that life-altering plunge?
Here is the full story of what took place on that incredible day.
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 October 29, 1959 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 33 Asterix albums.
