Asterix around the World - since 1995 Who is Asterix?

Asterix has become an institution in Europe, and a worldwide best seller. This heroic comic book character lives around 50 BC in a fictional Gaulish village in northwest Armorica. Together with his oversized, clumsy but good-hearted friend Obelix, he outwits Julius Caesar and his Roman Legions while preventing them from conquering their village. A recurring plot in most albums concerns the attempts by the Romans to steal the secret recipe of a potion that gives the drinker superhuman strength.
