Asterix celebrates in Belgium!


Asterix celebrates in Belgium!

Comic masterminds René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo first met in Belgium. Now the land of the comic book is celebrating the Asterix series and its creators!

The Manneken-Pis statue has been decked out in an Asterix costume for the occasion, while the Belgian Comic Strip Centre in Brussels pays homage to the two geniuses behind the adventures of our beloved Gauls with a fun exhibition inspired by Asterix in Belgium, the last album co-authored by René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo.

The trilingual exhibition (in English, French and Dutch) is devoted to the last album co-authored by René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo. The exhibition is accompanied by games and activities for all the family, which are sure to keep even the littlest visitors entertained.

To coincide with the exhibition, the Asterix in Belgium album will be re-issued in two versions in France: a special edition special edition (limited edition with an exclusive 16-page pull-out) and a luxury edition (large format, with a 30-page behind the scenes supplement and reproductions of Albert Uderzo's original illustrations and René Goscinny's story).

Brush up on your Belgian! Whip up some waffles! It's going to be choc-full of fun!
