I read Asterix when I was really young and now after almost 20 years I read them again - I still have the same passion and interest that I had the first time. I especially like the way the names of the characters allign with the various characters themselves - like Asterix - the star of the comic etc. Humorous, interesting and well illustrated - a good read for all age groups.
