Asterix & Obelix


If you need a bit of an adventure and a good laugh have a look at the Asterix & Obelix graphic novels we have at the library. There is 34 graphic novels to date and it is such a popular series that there have been 11 movies made as well, you can find most of these at the library also. The comics were written and illustrated by these cool guys from Paris, René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo, unfortunatly Goscinny passed away in 1977.

Set in ancient times, Asterix and Obelix are best friends from a little village in Gaul which holds out against the Roman Empire thanks to the aid of some magic potion brewed by their druid which gives them superhuman strength. They get up to all sorts of hilarious adventures and mishaps. They are just so much fun to read. Trust me, I’ve read them all.

Even now, when I come accross an Asterix and Obelix comic I can’t move from my spot till I’ve zoomed through it. So if you’re in need of a pick me up, I suggest you borrow out an Asterix & Obelix, park yourself where the sky won’t fall on your head and read till your eyeballs drop out. Guaranteed laughs. 🙂
