Sample text

A cameo by Don Quixote, caravan capers, and jokes about Spain's status as a much loved holiday destination with people from many nations trapped in a traffic jam. Pepe does perhaps run the risk of becoming somewhat annoying but the story at least moves along at a brisk pace and there is another memorable Roman villain driven to near insanity by our heroes in the form of Spurius Brontosaurus. Maybe a trifle too frantic for its own good at times but Asterix in Spain is a solid adventure and not bad at all.

Yes, the blueprint for the series is pleasantly in place right from the start with an amusing and incident packed adventure. Uderzo would refine his art in future volumes but his colourful and detailed illustrations are still a joy to behold. The book serves as a wonderful introduction to the cast of characters we would come to know so well although some of them (like Fulliautomatix the blacksmith in particular) look slightly different than they appear later. The basic plot - Romans attempt to destroy the village from within and use subterfuge instead of force - would be one that the Asterix series returned to several times but it often produced some of the very best books in the series.

An atypical entry in the series (as the title suggests) but a very good one nonetheless. There are essentially two types of Asterix story. The first (and most prevalent) is our diminutive central hero Asterix and his boar munching best friend Obelix having to go on an epic mission or quest outside the village that could take them to anywhere from Lutetia (ancestor to modern day Paris) to Rome to Egypt. The second device is the story set in and around the village where the Romans come up with some new elaborate scheme to try and finally bring this recalcitrant rabble of Gauls to heel (and naturally never succeed).
