Disaster strikes the Gaulish village in ASTERIX AND THE GOLDEN SICKLE, as Getafix the druid has broken his golden sickle which means no more magic potion.
In ASTERIX AND THE GOTHS, Getafix is kidnapped by the Goths so Asterix and Obelix have to ride to the rescue.
There is no better way to enjoy the antics of our indomitable hero and his friends.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A cartoon drawn with such supreme artistry, and a text layered with such glorious wordplay, satire and historical and political allusion that no reader should ever feel like they've outgrown it.—TIME OUT

The Asterix books represent the very summit of our achievement as a literary race. In Asterix one finds all of human life. The fact that the books were written originally in French is no matter. I have read them all in many languages and, like all great literature, they are best in English. Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge, Asterix's translators since the very beginning, have made great books into eternal flames.—THE TIMES
