THE RETURN OF ASTERIX, THE WORLD'S FIRST SUPERHERO: The relaunch of the re-inked, re-coloured and re-designed Asterix series, now published in the correct order for the first time.
Gaul was divided into three parts. No, four parts – for one small village of indomitable Gauls still held out against the Roman invaders.
Asterix and Obelix meet a new friend: a Corsican chieftain who had been Caesar's prisoner. Together, the trio returns to Corsica to help foil the evil plans of the corrupt Roman, Praetor Perfidius.
