Asterix in Belgium

Album 24

By René Goscinny
Illustrated by Albert Uderzo

  • Hardback
  • £10.99

The 24th album chronicling the much-loved adventures of Asterix and friends.

Who are bravest, the Belgian tribes or the Gauls? And who can destroy more fortified Roman camps? When the contest ends in a draw, and Julius Caesar is asked to adjudicate, he goes into action against both Gauls and Belgians. They unite against him, inventing fish and chips along the way. But will Caesar meet his Waterloo?
