Astérix et Obélix
Astérix et Obélix  is a comic strip  (Bande Dessinée or BD in French)  The first strips were published in  1959, written by René Goscinny and  drawn by Albert Uderzo (who are both Belgian).  Goscinny and Uderzo quickly expanded into writing  whole books. 33 books have been published so far, which  have been translated from the original French into over  100 languages (including English!)
Astérix and Obélix live in a  small village in the North-West of Gaul (France). The year is 50BC, and the  Romans have conquered all of Gaul. All of it? Not quite…
Astérix’ village has held out against the Romans, because of a potion which is made by the village druid, Getafix. It gives the villagers superhuman strength. Astérix’ best friend Obélix is never allowed any of the  potion, because he fell in  to a pot of it when he was  a baby and now always  has superhuman strength.
Astérix and Obélix (and sometimes other members of  their village) go on all sorts of adventures, sometimes near to home, and sometimes very far away.
There is a theme park near Paris called Parc Astérix devoted to Astérix, Obélix and the rest of the villagers. There have also been 9 board games, 24 computer  games, 8 animated films and 3 live action films made  about Astérix’ stories.
Main characters Astérix Obélix Dogmatix (Idéfix in French) Getafix (Panoramix in French) Vitalstatistix (Abraracourix in French) Cacafonix (Assurancetourix in French)
