9781444004281: Asterix Omnibus 4: Includes Asterix the Legionary #10, Asterix and the Chieftain's Shield #11, and Asterix at the Olympic Games #12

Asterix's millions of fans will want this attractive collector's edition, featuring three favorite stories. In Asterix the Legionary, Asterix and Obelix head to battle to rescue Tragicomix, whom the Romans have forcibly conscripted. The two find their friend...and cause a BIG commotion, too. It's a race to the finish in Asterix and the Chieftain's Shield as the Romans and the Gauls both try to track down a missing shield that Caesar needs for a triumphant ceremony. Can Asterix and his friends find it first? And Asterix and the Gauls go for the gold in Asterix at the Olympic Games--but their magic potion is banned! Can our heroes win without it?

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.

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
