I resently picked up a few copies of Astérix for a pretty low price, and I must say I like them (not as much as Tintin, of course), but I have a few questions:

1.) How many albums were made,

2.) What are they called,


3.) In what order where the published.

Thanks for any info,

There also was at least one Dogmatix story-book, a story-book of the “Twelve Tasks of Asterix” movie, and a story-book of “How Obelix Fell Into the Cauldron” (which had some nice versions of the characters as children). The Obelix one has been back in print, I think, but the the other two I don’t know about. I was spending my pocket money on Tintin, Jennings and Three Investigators books, so Asterix had to come from the library...

Thanks for the info. Appearently the Swedish publishers managed to mess up the publication orders again, just like Tintin!

Just one more question: Are they still making Astérix stories?

As far as I know, yes. Rene Goscinny died 25 years ago but Albert Udzero (the artist) has been putting out new books recently. Whether they're as good as the Goscinny/Udzero originals is another matter...

PS - good to see another Jennings and Three Investigators fan, jock123! Very sad to hear that Anthony Buckeridge died recently.

Off topic, but Anthony Buckeridge can be heard as I type on BBC Radio 7, playing Mr Wilkins in a production of Jennings at School, played as a tribute to him. It gets a repeat later today and early hours tomorrow, and will be on the Listen Again feature for a week.

I’m off to Parc Astérix tomorrow for a couple of days, so hopefully I’ll find something there as well as on the ’net!
