Publishers around the World

Last update: April 15th 2016

This is a complete list with all known Asterix publishers, both former and current publishers. A few publishers are only changed of name.
We tried to list them in order of time.

Some translations know special editions published by another publisher than the regular publisher at that time. As they are not the main
publisher we do not list them here.

Not all publishers put Asterix on the market anymore. Besides that, not all publishers published all the albums in their own language.
For more information about a specific translation or publisher have a look at our detailed language pages.
