Asterix in Spain

Album 14

By René Goscinny
Illustrated by Albert Uderzo

  • Hardback
  • £10.99

The 14th album chronicling the much-loved adventures of Asterix and friends.

The brave Iberians are holding out against Julius Caesar, like Asterix and his friends. So when Chief Huevos y Bacon's son is taken hostage, who better to recuse him than the Gauls? Taking him home to Hispania, now Spain, they tangle with the tourist industry and flamenco, and face a wild aurochs in the arena - or bullring. And can it be true? Cacofonix finds a fan in little Pepe!
