Asterix Annotations
Review at Alea Iacta Est
One of Corsica's (Corse's) most important chiefs is captured by the Romans and exiled to one of the Roman camps around the village of the Gauls we all know so well. Not a smart move of the Romans and before we know Asterix, Obelix and Boneywasawarriorwayayix (Ocatarinetabellatchitchix) (what a name...) are on the road to Corsica. Here our friends have to deal with, in their eyes, a strange way of life on this island. Some century old internal conflict between old Corsican families are put aside to fight against their common enemy, the Romans. A happening which Obelix, as usual, appreciates a lot.
