Omnibus 8

Asterix and the Great Crossing, Obelix and Co, Asterix in Belgium

By René Goscinny
Illustrated by Albert Uderzo

  • Hardback
  • £19.99

A special collectors' edition of three fun and funny Asterix stories in one volume - ASTERIX AND THE GREAT CROSSING, OBELIX AND CO. and ASTERIX IN BELGIUM.

In this collectors' edition, books 22 to 24 are brought together in one fabulous volume.

In ASTERIX AND THE GREAT CROSSING, a storm blows Asterix and Obelix off course. Luckily they land on the shores of a Roman colony - or is it? Teepees, totems, gobbling birds: it's not what they're used to.

Julius Caesar sends Caius Preposterus, graduate of the Latin School of Economics, to corrupt the indomitable Gauls in OBELIX AND CO. Obelix's menhir trade is soon thriving - but does wealth bring happiness?

In ASTERIX IN BELGIUM, the Gauls compete with the Belgian tribes to determine who is the bravest. But if the two groups unite, will Caesar meet his Waterloo?

There is no better way to enjoy the antics of our indomitable hero and his friends.
