The film Asterix versus Caesar made in 1985 was based on this album and Asterix the Gladiator

Obelix is in love – but the beautiful Panacea is engaged to Tragicomix, a conscript in the Roman army. Who’d have expected to see Asterix in a legionary’s uniform?

When he and Obelix join up to rescue Tragicomix from North Africa, Cunturions Nefarius Purpus and Debius Status don’t know what’s hit them. But the Gauls and their fellow recruits have a smashing trip abroad.

What the druids have to say about the album

This album has everything – all the Asterix magic and all the talent of the authors. René’s humour and tenderness are at their height and Albert has become the undisputed master of comic strip humour alongside his friend Franquin. An absolute delight.

Pierre Tchernia, who worked with the authors on film adaptations, makes for a choice caricature here. In his first appearance in the Asterix world he is a Roman dignitary. Later appearances are often less glorious …

It is in this album that we see a tribute to the famous painting by Géricault, The Raft of the Medusa, which Alain Chabat reconstructed for the big screen in the film Asterix and Obelix: Mission Cleopatra.

Don’t miss the Belgian legionary on page 21: the hair-do beneath his helmet is a familiar sight to comic strip fans.
