The next action-packed adventure from Asterix and Obelix!
The roads across Italy are in disrepair. Defending his name, and to prove Rome's greatness, Senator Lactus Bifidus announces a special one-off chariot race. Julius Caesar insists a Roman must win, or Bifidus will pay. Open to anyone from the known world, competitors arrive from far and wide, including Asterix and Obelix. With Bifidus secretly scheming, who will win this almighty chariot race?
An energetic story with some very bad/good jokes, and just enough silly Roman-bashing, it's just the sort of thing we Asterix fans love (THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY on Asterix and the Missing Scroll)
...the transition to new author/illustrator is seamless with all the best points of the originals faithfully reproduced. [...] Brilliantly written and illustrated; a worthy successor. (Parents in Touch)
...an easy, funny, packed read. It looks great, it never bored me for even a second, and it even made me laugh out loud a few times. (Pipeline Comics)
...furiously funny and hilariously jam-packed with timeless jibes and cracking contemporary swipes, plus an enchanting double-surprise ending. Asterix and the Chariot Race is a sure win and another triumphant addition to the mythic canon for laugh-seekers in general and all devotees of comics. (Comics Review)
