A special collector's edition of three Asterix stories - ASTERIX THE GAUL, ASTERIX AND THE GOLDEN SICKLE and ASTERIX AND THE GOTHS - in one volume
In this fabulous collector's edition of Asterix, the first three Asterix stories are collected in one volume.
In Asterix the Gaul, we are introduced to our indomitable hero and his friends as they try to defend one small village in Gaul from being conquered by the legionaries of Rome who surround them.
In Asterix and the Golden Sickle, Getafix the druid's golden sickle is broken, which means no more magic potion, so Asterix and Obelix set out for Lutetia (Paris) to buy a new one.
In Asterix and the Goths, Getafix is kidnapped by the Goths who want to invade Rome and Gaul, so Asterix and Obelix have to ride to the rescue.
Albert Uderzo has been illustrating Asterix for 37 years, and has written the most recent titles since Goscinny's death. He enjoys racing sports cars and owns a large number of Ferraris. He was the recipient of the Legion d'Honneur, France's highest honour, for services to the arts. Asterix is a best seller in 70 languages
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.
