In the small Brittany village that we all know and love, everyone - warriors, craftsmen, merchants and druid alike - is carrying on peacefully with their activities…. Except for one hut in which can be heard blood-curdling screams: "Haaaaaaaa! Owww! Ooohhh!"

But don't jump to conclusions: for once our bard is not the cause of this wailing. It is, in fact, our beloved leader who is once again prey to a dreadful bout of indigestion, the result of having over-indulged at the birthday banquet in honour of Asterix and Obelix!

So, for once, you won't have to sit through one of his interminable speeches, even though today's news is a matter of great importance for all Asterix fans: the Grand Collection is back!

This anthology of the Asterix adventures, restored to their full glory with fresh inking, lettering and colours, and presented for the very first time in a large format that expresses the full force of Albert Uderzo's drawings, had been relegated to the back shelf for a while.

And why, do you ask? The many projects devised to celebrate Asterix's birthday had kept the entire team mobilized for months on end; they are now thrilled at the prospect of getting back to this exceptional project.
To such a point that they are already hard at work - not on just one, but on two albums at once! We can thus present you with a preview of the covers for Asterix and the Big Fight and Asterix in Britain, both of which are to be published next year. It won't be long before we will be bringing you more news and amazing surprises!
