A new Asterix album in 2017!
In the village of the Gauls, we're celebrating the new year by announcing the release of a new Asterix album on 19 October 2017!
Barely two years since Asterix and the Missing Scroll, our heroes, created by René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo, are back with new adventures by Jean-Yves Ferri and Didier Conrad.
And even though it's a little too early for us to say much more, the two authors have revealed a scoop: "Even though we can't reveal the main thrust of the story, we can tell you it will be about a trip abroad, as is traditional with every few albums! After staying in Gaul for Asterix and the Missing Scroll, this time our heroes are taking readers on an adventure beyond the border!"
This great little teaser in the form of an exclusive page is a fantastic gift, and is a way of honouring another Asterix tradition: Goscinny and Uderzo releasing preview pages in French comic magazine Pilote before each new album.
Ferri and Conrad have us intrigued: does Obelix have one of his special adventures in store for us? The answer will be revealed on 19 October! But one thing is certain: the year is getting off to a great start!
