For the millions of Asterix fans old and young alike the wait is over. ASTERIX RETURNS sees our favourite hero on fine form in this superb collection of short stories. ASTERIX RETURNS includes 10 short stories by Goscinny and Uderzo (many unpublished in the UK) and a further 2 brand-new short stories created by Albert Uderzo. The initial print-run in French is a cool million and Asterix and his chums once again look set to take the UK by storm.

'If Orion Books had just found and published one of the "lost" Shakespeare plays...I would not have been more excited than when I learnt of the publication of 14 previously untranslated Asterix stories in a new book called ASTERIX AND THE CLASS ACT....Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge, Asterix's translators since the very beginning, have made great books into eternal flames' (Giles Coren THE TIMES )

'One of the most appealing features of the Asterix books is their ingenious, twisting plotlines, filled with scheming villains and hapless fools....Asterix and the Class Act might appeal more to Asterix diehards than to general fans; but it is an entertaining addition to the canon' (Toby Lichtig TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT )

'Asterix is a true hero of global proportions' (COLCHESTER EVENING GAZETTE )

Here's a chance to dip into some new fun with the roast boar-loving French action men (Marion McMullen NUNEATON EVE TELEGRAPH )

'LIke all the best children's books, Asterix works on several levels. More than a footnote, this addition to the series is worthy of its lineage' (EVERYTHING FRANCE )

As is the norm with these two - this is only 1p more at Amazon if you prefer LINK
But beware these arent that new, & you can see why they were previously untranslated- I aint gonna dis Asterix, this collection has a few good bits, but its really only for completists, for someone whos read all the other stories watched all the dvds & wanted something new.
Just dont expect it to be the best is all.
Better to go to the amazom link. Just clicked on the Book repostiory link and the price is now £5.57.
Ordered for a friend - Thanks

by toutatis, cheap at under 5 sestertii
