Description

Gaul was divided into three parts. No, four parts - for one small village of indomitable Gauls still held out against the Roman invaders. ASTERIX CONQUERS AMERICA Getafix has been captured by Romans and catapulted off the edge of the world and so Asterix and Obelix follow in hot pursuit to find their wizard. When they reach what they think to be the edge of the world, our heroes finding themselves in America. Danger lurks on these foreign shores, however, and Asterix and Getafix are both captured by Indians and held prisoner. All is not lost, though, as Obelix saves the chief's daughter's life and our Gaulish heroes manage to befriend the Indians. All except one, who is determined to steal the secret of the magic potion from Getafix. Will Asterix and Obelix save the day? Originally published as a film-tie-in, ASTERIX CONQUERS AMERICA has been reworked and completely redesigned, and is now a must-have addition to any fan's collection.show more
