Post Asterix appreciation thread
As the name suggests:

Top 5 books

1. Asterix and the Banquet
2. Obelix and Co
3. Asterix and the Normans
4. Asterix in Belgium
5. Asterix and the Goths

As for the post Goscinny books - their definitely not as good but there are some gems - Black gold was great and Asterix and Son was ok as well. The only one I can't stand was the one with aliens..very odd

Trivia question: In which book did Dogmatix make his first appearance?

Dogmatix first appears in your favourite, Asterix And The Banquet I think? He follows Asterix and Obelix around after being outside a butchers.

1. Asterix In Britain
2. Asterix In Switzerland
3. Asterix And Cleopatra
4. Asterix In Belgium
5. Asterix And The Chieftains Shield


EDIT: Honourable mention to Asterix And The Great Divide and Asterix And The Soothsayer.

In no order

The Big Fight
The Banquet
The Normans
The Soothsayer
Cheftains Shield

I re-read And the Magic Carpet one a month or so ago (which filled twenty minutes or so) other than that i haven't looked at them in years so my memories a bit rusty.

Asterix gets 5 fists, as does Tintin incidentally. Hugely responsible for getting me interested in art and drawing as a little 'un. Props for the thread on the books.

As a child i deeply annoyed that the Normans in Asterix and the Normans were clearly vikings. I didn't know that the the Normans where of viking descent, I don't think it's explained, the translation should have been called Asterix and the Vikings.

I can't really remember all the books I read a hell of a lot when I was younger and going to buy them all again at somepoint.

Asterix is great.

Has Ed_B/Wolf Bender not posted here yet? I thought he'd be all over the chance to explain the underlying French politics/semantic quirks that none of you understood.

The Normans being called Normans confused me as well - even more so when there were Vikings in 'The Great Crossing', who actually were referred to as Vikings (I think).

Anyway, 'The Great Crossing', 'The Cauldron' and 'The Soothsayer' are my favourites.

Me too. I read them all when I was 10 years old and used to laugh out loud whenever Obelix beat up the Romans.

I enjoyed the books so much that I'm very nostalgic about them. I can't get the same enjoyment out of them now but once in a blue moon I'll look at some of the ones I still own.

Asterix is one of the greatest things of all time. I lived for those books as a kid. Proper and good drawing too.

^ Innit. So many neat little details that sometimes you might miss but on a re-read would see them again and cackle wildly.

All the movement and gestures in the pictures. You can always tell what they're saying to each other just with those things alone, almost without reading the words.
