Written by: Jean-Yves Ferri – Drawings by: Didier Conrad
Original title: Le Papyrus de César
Published by: Les Éditions Albert René
First album edition: octobre 22th, 2015
Two years after the hit album Asterix and the Picts, the characters created by René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo return in a new story written by Jean-Yves Ferri and illustrated by Didier Conrad.
It contains all the vital ingredients of an Asterix magic potion: the history of Rome and the Gauls is revisited and rewritten with plenty of gags and puns thrown into the mix! By Toutatis!
What the druids have to say about the album
Try as Julius Caesar might to censor it, there’s no stopping Asterix and the Missing Scroll ! The new album is a success with readers and critics alike. All the newsmongers are unanimous, expressing their enthusiasm in columns full of the highest praise, in the various Acta Diurna1. «A thunderbolt of the literary world.» «Already a classic!» The headlines are falling over themselves to laud the quality of a new album that will still be talked about in 2,000 years!
Haven’t read it yet? To whet your appetite for the host of gags awaiting you, discover the main characters below and a few choice secrets from the world of Asterix and Obelix:
- Confoundtheirpolitix, a newsmonger without borders
- Libellus Blockbustus, an adviser rapidly running out of options
- Archeopterix, the Druid at the top!
Caesar is back… And he’s not happy!
Hardly surprising, considering the titular Missing Scroll belongs to big, bad Caesar himself! But we also learn about a book that means a great deal to dear old Julius… Could it be the famous Comments on the Gallic War?
News at the Village
All is calm with Asterix and his friends, but is all that about to change with the arrival of Condate’s Echo?
Obelix on the attack!
Worthy of the great opening battle of Obelix & Co, this big box bursting with details and discoveries shows us, (as if we needed further proof) that Obelix is crazy… about stomping Romans!
It’s incredible! The watchman from the pirate ship seems to be all smiles! Have the Gau… the Gaugau… the Gauls spared their favourite seafaring companions?
