Asterix news
News, Gossip and Rumours from Asterix around the World

Most of these news items are concerned with the international publication of Asterix comic books. However, we try to cover all news of Asterix, including media appearances and new products... but we need your help. Items other than comic translations are presented against a coloured background.
Happy Birthday Albert!
Joyeux anniversaire! This week Albert Uderzo one of the original "fathers" of Asterix celebrates his 87th birthday, on April 25. Many happy and healthy years from us villagers (eeuh, fans). Roasted boar everyone? (25 April 14)
Fáilte in Éirinn
All Europe is conquered by Gaulish warriors. All? No, a small village has been resisting until now. Rumours have it that finally a last blank spot on the Asterix map will be coloured: Asterix will be moving to Ireland. Expected this fall. Slainte.

  Home page change
Returning visitors have probably noticed a change of this website. Now we jump directly to the translations page where we have added the news section and the links of the old menu. We decided to make this change because the Asterix translations are the core activity of our website. (18 February 14)
Happy Holidays
We wish you all the best for the year 2014. We celebrate with a nice roasted boar and a fine cup of goat's milk, good music. Health and happiness to you all. (30 December 13)
  trente-cinq!
Finally available for all, in many languages, the 35th album in the series. Congratulations to Didier Conrad and Jean-Yves Ferri, who created the new book (overseen by Albert Uderzo, who had the last word in many details, as a kind teacher). The first reviews are favourable. (26 October 13)
