    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, their most famous creation, Asterix, made his first appearance on page 20 ofPilote. Asterix the Gaul, their first album, was published in 1961, and there have now been 34Asterix albums.
    This special collectors' edition features books 16 to 18 in one fabulous volume.

    In ASTERIX IN SWITZERLAND, a poisoning means Asterix and Obelix must go to Helvetia for an antidote. Can they overcome cuckoo hourglasses, yodelling and holes in the cheese?

    A housing estate lies at the heart of Caesar's new plan to crush the Gauls in THE MANSIONS OF THE GODS. Will the villagers be tempted by the chance to make money when the Roman tenants move in?

    In ASTERIX AND THE LAUREL WREATH, Chief Vitalstatistix wants a stew seasoned with Caesar's laurel wreath. Asterix and Obelix must fetch the wreath, but will their plan end in disaster or their own Roman triumph?

    There is no better way to enjoy the antics of our indomitable hero and his friends.

    • great books for anyone who loves comics
      Verified Purchase

      I've bought four of Asterix books for my 10-year-old son who loves these quasi-historical comics. The great thing about these books is that each of them contains 3 regular comics, so it's a great way to build a decent collection. My son loves reading them and spends a lot of time with them and discusses them with his friends. The books are fun and entertaining, and I particularly like challenging my son to research how much of their content is based on actual facts.
