Set in 50 b.c., these hysterical historical tales follow the adventures of Asterix and his pals in the days of the Roman Empire. To impress Julius Caesar, Queen Cleopatra promises to build the Roman Emperor a magnificent palace in just three months. Of course, Asterix has to get involved. By the time his feisty group from Gaul have finished, they’ve outwitted the Roman army, too.

    Comments about Asterix and Cleopatra:

    While not one of my favorites in the series it can't be denied that Asterix and Cleopatra is a well written classic in the Asterix comics. The entertaining story, fun characters and smart writing which will even engross the older reader.
