Asterix Series

by
(90 reviews)

Comic book lovers cannot miss out on this iconic and utterly hilarious comic book series set in 50 BC, just after the Gallic Wars featuring two companions, Asterix and Obelix. 

The comic books follow three main characters: Asterix, who looks level-headedly after his village, Obelix, who was gifted superhuman strength at birth, and Dogmatix, Obelix's dog. Together, the friends travel all over the world, meeting historical figures from Cleopatra to Julius Caesar, and reimagining history as we know it. 

The series is so funny and is one of our favourite Graphic Novels For Kids, perfect for fans of  Horrible Histories and all things funny.
