Artwork and captions are wonderful Asterix fans should definitely put their hands on this one.
Thank you, NetGalley and Papercutz, for a complimentary copy of this graphic novel I used to read these comics in Germany back when I was a kid I devoured every one of them and had high expectations when I started reading this English version Honestly, they did a fantastic job turning the names of the characters with puns that can only be understood if you speak the language in which you are reading the comic into English characters with puns While I was sad not to see the familiar names e.
, of the druid , I laughed a lot when I read the English version of the names So, here is my overall opinion of this comicGOOOOOOO and reading it NOW If you love comics, you will love this one Asterix and Obelix are two of the greatest comic heroes in the world Now I really want to go and read the author s Lucky Luke comics in English to see if they are just as great Does Asterix really need an introduction Definitely not In Asterix Omnibus, we revisit the very first stories of the famous Gaul and his party of brave and hilarious friends, as they defend their tiny village from the mighty Romans Go back in time and enjoy a glimpse into the first adventures Highly recommended.
It was a fun read remembering my youth, I love Asterix and Obelix and all the village I really missed them and it was great reading again one of their adventures, I love this colorful, bold, and entertaining collected comics I would be glad to add a hard copy of this to my collection.
I just got the first chapter of the omnibus but as a long date asterix fan, it was amazing to dive into the world again.
Always funny and distracting I would love to get the whole book
My husband used to have a bunch of these in French from when he was a kid My French was never good enough to read them, so when I saw this, I had to read it I am not familiar with the show, so the only thing I knew about it was that my husband enjoyed it when he was a kid But the first chapter in this book gives you the basics, so not being familiar with the story is not an issue Basically, the Romans have captured all of Gaul with the exception of one little village that is fighting for all they re worth Asterix is a particularly wily member of this village and his constant companion Obelix is basically the muscle With the help of all this cunning and intelligence and a secret potion that gives the village strength Obelix s is permanent because he fell into the potion as a child , they re able to fight off the Romans There is plenty of humor and puns ah yes, you either love them or you hate them and the illustrations are wonderful I ll definitely be interested in a full copy when this edition is published Thanks to NetGalley and Papercutz for this ARC in exchange for my honest review.
As a kid I used to watch Asterix and Oblix cartoons every weekend at my grandparents This was just like stepping back into my childhood The preview copy I recieved only had the first chapter of the Omnibus It was the story of a Roman trying to infiltrate the Gaul village to learn why they are able to resist the Roman army It is funny, I cannot wait to get my hands on the entire Omnibus.
