Asterix Omnibus by René Goscinny
Cover Concept by Lorenzo Princi, 3 August 2014

The complete adventures of Asterix by René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo collected in the omnibus series is the perfect way to enjoy all these classic works. Filled with laughter, action and adventure these short stories not only bring back good memories from youth but also remind older readers how good they are and how well they hold up. 

Witty puns and subtle satire spew from the page as the clever Gaul Asterix and his powerful, loyal friend Obelix help their small village stay free from Roman rule. Outsmarting Romans, fighting off bandits, wonderful encounters and feasting on boar is all in a days work for our lovable heroes.

Poking light hearted fun, these charming fantasy tales are filled with intelligent writing and beautifully rich, colourful art. For fans of lighter comics which can be enjoyed by young and old such as Tin Tin and Jeff Smith's Bone.
