Contains 3 newly-translated classic Asterix tales. Asterix is a fearless Gaul with a magic potion that grants him incredible strength to protect his village and ward off the Roman Empire from invading. With his pal, Obelix, they defend their village from not only the blundering Roman legionairies, but also lend their services to the rest of the world.
First, Asterix and Obelix and their tone-deaf bard Cacofonix attempt to bring rain to a far-off Eastern Kingdom in “Asterix and the Magic Carpet.” Asterix and Julius Caesar race head-to-head to implement their “Secret Weapon” to their forces and advance into a new age. Their futures are female. And finally, Obelix gets his hands on the magic potion and flees the village.
