  • Asterix competition

    Mon, 26 Oct 2009 18:53

    How do you fancy winning all 34 of the Asterix books? I'm sure you'll agree that it's a pretty amazing prize for any fans of Asterix, his best mate Obelix and the wonderful Dogmatix.

    Just answer the following questions and send the answers to me in an email entitled "Asterix quiz answers" to editor AT and I'll draw a random winner at the end of the first week of November.

    Asterix questions:

    • In what magazine did Asterix first appear?
    • In what year was this?
    • Who played Obelix in the 1999 live action Asterix film?

    The competition deadline has been extended and now closes on 20th November and is open to UK residents only. The winners will be announced on the blog in the middle of December.

    Oh, and please, please don't leave your answers as comments on the blog -- if you do, I'll just have to delete them!

      My son is a huge fan of Asterix, if we win this prize it would certainly make his day.

      Wish it was available to everyone worldwide, not just those in the U.K. Also, the original French editions would be very cool, so I can practice my French! ;)
