Product description

In this special collectors' edition, books four to six are brought together in one fabulous volume for the first time ever. In ASTERIX THE GLADIATOR, Julius Caesar plans to throw the captured Cacofonix to the lions. Asterix and Obelix enlist as gladiators in order to rescue him, and teach their colleagues some interesting new tricks. In ASTERIX AND THE BANQUET, the Romans build a barricade around the Gaulish village. But Asterix and Obelix break out and travel the entire country, collecting local specialities along the way. Asterix, Obelix and co visit Egypt in ASTERIX AND CLEOPATRA, where they are entranced by the Sphinx, the pyramids and Cleopatra's nose. There is no better way to enjoy the antics of our indomitable hero and his friends.
