Asterix the Gaul (Paperback)

, ,
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Asterix the Gaul is the first volume of the Asterix comic strip series, by Ren Goscinny (stories) and Albert Uderzo (illustrations). All of Gaul or Armorica is divided into three parts. No, four - for one small village of indomitable Gauls still holds out against the Roman invaders.... Centurion Crismus Bonus, head of the Roman garrison at the fortified camp of Compendium and very keen to discover the secret of the Gauls' superhuman strength, sends a spy disguised as a Gaul into the village. The Roman's identity is revealed when he loses his false moustache, but not before he discovers the existence of the magic potion brewed by the Druid Getafix and actually manages to taste some. With that potion, Crismus Bonus believes that he could overthrow Julius Caesar, and become Emperor himself. So he and his second-in-command Marcus Ginandtonicus have Getafix captured in order to get the recipe.
