Joyeux anniversaire! Today April 25 Albert Uderzo artist and "father" of Asterix celebrates his 90th birthday. A very special day. Many happy and healthy years from the villagers (eeuh, fans).

Un nouvel album d'Astérix en 2017!
Yes, even if you do not read French, this is very good news. The 37th album is scheduled to appear on 19 october 2017, in several translations we guess. The French publisher has issued a one-page "teaser" on its social networks for the new story. And indeed it looks very promising. Can't wait to see more of this! Ah. Watch Disclosure of the new title expected soon. (20 Jan & 4 April 17)
XII Travaux
On the special occasion of the 40-th anniversary of the animated movie "the Twelve Tasks of Asterix" the illustrated book of the film has been reissued. "Les douze travuax d'Asterix" contains completely new illustrations based on the detailed model sheets that were drawn by Albert Uderzo at the time. We recall that this is not a comic book (with balloon texts) but rather an illustrated story of the film. To check whether the book also appeared in your language, see the page of Albert Rene. (30 October 16)
