Synopsis

Asterix: Asterix And The Falling Sky Album 33 by Albert Uderzo

The Gauls have only one fear: that the sky may fall on their heads tomorrow. But tomorrow never comes, says Chief Vitalstatistix. Or does it? It looks as if it's come at last for Asterix, Obelix and the other villagers. And some surprising new characters fall along with the sky. Our friends soon find themselves in the middle of a space race...

Reviews

new readers and particularly children will enjoy the wonderful illustration, characters, and, most importantly, the humour of the latest book * FRENCH MAGAZINE * Asterix and the Falling Sky has done what few series manage to do - it has moved into the future while maintaining all the historical elements which make it so popular with fans around the world. Here's hoping for another album before too long, by Toutatis! * WESTERN MAIL CARDIFF * ...combines its trademark graphics with a brand of comic-book art more readily associated with Alex Raymond's Flash Gordon series. Its format and jokes remain comfortingly familiar, and the later are still not afraid to keep one eye on contemporary concerns -- Toby Lichtig * TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT *
