With Asterix, every day is another book fest! Now translated into 104 different languages and dialects, the most famous of all Gauls sees new publications added every day to his collection from all four corners of the Known World. It's high time therefore for an update on the latest releases…



Our German cousins' printing presses have been particularly busy where, in addition to the release of a number of spin-off publications from the Asterix at the Olympic Games film, successive albums from The Asterix Grand Collection have been put on sale in local shops. In the last few months, no fewer than four new titles have appeared: Asterix and the Banquet, Asterix and Cleopatra, Asterix and Son and Asterix and the Magic Carpet. Our Goth friends have even given a remarkable welcome to Oumpah-Pah the Redskin, Goscinny and Uderzo's first creation, with the recent publication of the complete series in a superb single volume.



In the absence of The Grand Collection, English-speaking readers can now enjoy new high-quality omnibus editions. Omnibus, you say? The cousin of Manlius Claphamomnibus from Asterix and the Secret Weapon? No! An omnibus is actually an album containing no fewer than three complete adventures. Two volumes are already available, the first of which contains the first three Asterix albums, whilst the second one features the last three.
Finally, in Brazil, the tribute album to Albert Uderzo, Asterix and Friends, has just been translated, whilst Turkish readers have finally been able to discover the Asterix and the Class Act album. Let it not be said that Asterix doesn't travel the world over!
