The indomitable Gauls Asterix und Obelix are off again on a new adventure. Volume 37 takes the two best friends into the lion's den - to ancient Italy, where their arch enemy Julius Caesar rules in Rome.
Asterix and Obelix are well known names, but sometimes the main characters of the best-selling comic series were creatively renamed in translation. Who are Yali, Witblix and co? Find out here.
An original signed drawing from an early Asterix and Obelix comic book has been auctioned off for a record €1.4 million. The sale comes one week before the gallivanting Gauls' newest adventure is set to be released.
Asterix and Obelix are Albert Uderzo's most famous creations. Although he no longer illustrates the comic, he still keeps an eye on the adventures of his characters. The next volume is due to be published in October.
