Description

Gaul was divided into three parts. No, four parts - for one small village of indomitable Gauls still held out against the Roman invaders. THE TWELVE TASKS OF ASTERIX Having grown weary of being mocked by his citizens, Caesar throws down the gauntlet to our Gaulish friends...if they can prove themselves to be gods by completing twelve impossible tasks then Caesar will grant them their liberty. Can Asterix race faster than the famous Greek athlete, Asbestos? Can Obelix throw a javelin further than Verses the Persian? Will they be able to solve the mystery of The Old Man of the Mountains? And how will they fare against the strongest and most prestigious warriors of all...the Gladiators? Originally published as a film-tie-in, THE TWELVE TASKS OF ASTERIX has been reworked and completely redesigned, and is now a must-have addition to any fan's collection.show more
