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.

BOOK 4

Oh no! The Romans have captured Cacofonix as a gift for Caesar—and the Emperor plans to throw him to the lions. There’s only one way for Asterix and Obelix to rescue their bard: they have to become gladiators themselves.
