Asterix and Obliex series are the best So much content, such a comic language, intricate detailing in very square of the story one can imagine how much effort they must have put to create these gems I like all of them but Asterix and the Legionary and this one Asterix and the Normans are my favorite out of favourites I keep repeating many lines aloud when I read Asterix comics as the flow of words is magical. Another fun adventure with my childhood favourites. cacofonix gets back on fulliautomatix well, sort ofi was supposed to cram in these asterix books to meet my 53 book challenge for 2014better luck next time, slacker me happy new year to everyone Why would you go to Asterix to find out what fear was But the best thing about this series is the fact that Asterix has intelligence. This graphic album was a great find from a pile of clearance books at National Book Store in Centrio There were a few other Asterix titles on sale but this was the only one was by it original creators Rene Goscinny and Albert Uderzo It was at half price off so it was very hard not to buy.Despite it being half price off, truth be told, I was hesitating to getting it It is not that I don t enjoy Franco Belgian comics, I enjoy Herge s Tintin and Peyo s Smurfs It was that the first few Asterix I read I didn t quite get the European style of humor But that changed with this volume.I thought the premise was idiotic, Vikings who wanted to know the meaning of fear They were not even called Vikings here but Normans and although Normans may be related to Vikings, they didn t settle in France a few centuries later Although since the word Norman actually means northman it was technically correct to refer to them here as Normans.Another plot involved the city kid that is Asterix s chief s nephew His father was worried that Justforkix was getting soft, sent him to Asterix s village to grow up a little.I was initially puzzled how this two plots would merge as the story ends but it does beautifully I thought it was corny at first but I ended up laughing at tbe last few pages as the graphic album winded down It also helped that Uderzo has just a great comic style that blended seamlessly with Goscinny s plots and words.This volume helped make me a believer It was plain to see why Goscinny and Uderzo were considered legends of Franco Belgian comics. My fav Asterix of all times 3
