Asterix the Gaul adventures
Vol. 23 - Obelix and Co

Written by: Goscinny - Drawings by: Uderzo
Original title: Obélix et Compagnie
Published by: Hachette Livre
First album edition: 1976

Julius Caesar sends Caius Preposterus, a bright young graduate of the Latin School of Economics, to corrupt the indomitable Gauls by introducing them to big business.

Obelix's menhir trade is soon thriving, backed by a heavy advertising campaign - but does wealth bring happiness? And what will happen when the bottom falls out of the menhir market?

What the druids have to say about Obelix and Co

The main theme of the album is greed - golden boy style - and the authors have given Obelix a villainous role to intensify the effect.

The course on political economy given by an Obelix charmed by the laws of supply and demand is a little handbook for novice market raiders. Sheer delight.

The album was also published in Occitan by the French Société Toulousaine du Livre in 1976. Today, this type of edition is rare and has become a collector's item. Here's a well-known Asterix passage, written in Occitan: Revirada de Cantalausa: Sè en 50 abans Jèsus Crist. Gàllia tota es mestrejada pels Romans... Tota? non pas, qu'un vilatge de Galleses encanissats quita pas de brandir pelhas a l'ocupaire. Tot es pas rossèl, tant se'n manca! per les garnisons de legionaris romans dins los enclastres d'Engolaventum, Copafum, Faimelum e Manjafarsum. seguirà? o seguirà pas?
