by Jean-Yves Ferri
The long-awaited latest Asterix album, featuring the world's favourite Gaul. Following in the footsteps of Goscinny and Uderzo, Jean-Yves Ferri and Didier Conrad have created the 36th Asterix album, which centres around a mysterious missing scroll. Caesar is back...And he's not happy! Hardly surprising, considering the Missing Scroll of the title belongs to big, bad Caesar himself! But we also learn about a book that means a great deal to dear old Julius...Could it be the famous Comments on the Gallic War? News from the Village All is calm with Asterix and his friends, but is all that about to change? A new baddie for the collection: Libellus Blockbustus "The better the villain, the better the film..." Alfred Hitchcock's famous adage applies just as well to Asterix, whose rollcall of baddies (Codfix, Tortuous Convolvulus, Caius Preposterus, Artifis, etc.) is impressive! Asterix and the Missing Scroll features an evil new character: Libellus Blockbustus. Join millions of fans worldwide to celebrate Asterix and the Gauls in their latest adventure.
