Asterix and the Class Act, Goscinny and Uderzo

Asterix and the Class Act - Albert Uderzo, René Goscinny

The collected Asterix short stories!


These are as varied as they are fabulous!


We see: a story about how the animals of the village also hold out against Roman Imperialism; a story about Gaulish fashion; the birth of our heroes; Asterix in the styles of several other comix; the Obelix family tree; how Lutetia won a competition to host the Olympics; how Spring defeated Winter with the help of the village of Indomitable Gauls; a lot of Roman-bashing; and numourous other adventures! Absolutely top-notch work from Goscinny and Uderzo, spanning 40+ years of Asterix comics history.
