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.
XII Travaux
On the special occasion of the 40-th anniversary of the animated movie "the Twelve Tasks of Asterix" the illustrated book of the film has been reissued. "Les douze travuax d'Asterix" contains completely new illustrations based on the detailed model sheets that were drawn by Albert Uderzo at the time. We recall that this is not a comic book (with balloon texts) but rather an illustrated story of the film. To check whether the book also appeared in your language, see the page of Albert Rene. (30 October 16)
