Description

In this fabulous collector's edition of Asterix, the first three Asterix stories are collected in one volume for the first time ever. In Asterix the Gaul, we are introduced to our indomitable hero and his friends as they try to defend one small village in Gaul from being conquered by the legionaries of Rome who surround them. In Asterix and the Golden Sickle, Getafix the druid's golden sickle is broken, which means no more magic potion, so Asterix and Obelix set out for Lutetia (Paris) to buy a new one. In Asterix and the Goths, Getafix is kidnapped by the Goths who want to invade Rome and Gaul, so Asterix and Obelix have to ride to the rescue.show more
