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.

WRITE A REVIEW

A Classic in the series

5

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.

Asterix and Cleopatra

5.0 1

100.0

A cartoon drawn with such supreme artistry, and a text layered with such glorious wordplay, satire and historical and political allusion that no reader should ever feel like they've outgrown it.--TIME OUT
The Asterix books represent the very summit of our achievement as a literary race. In Asterix one finds all of human life. The fact that the books were written originally in French is no matter. I have read them all in many languages and, like all great literature, they are best in English. Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge, Asterix's translators since the very beginning, have made great books into eternal flames.--THE TIMES
