For #40, the Roman on the left speaking, I read in the voice of Hedonism Bot.

What’s awesome about #69 is that it comes at the end of a long string of encounters with people while they’re in the Tigris-Euphrates valley, filled with different civilizations that are all beating the crap out of each other.

Can’t wait for Part Three. I hope you go no further than the India (aka Magic Carpet), though, the last good Asterix’s comic.

Ha ha, I’m pretty sure that it’s actually the artist (and later on, writer) of Asterix, Albert Uderzo, wearing the Animal-Hide Toga in #42.

I always thought all the eating scenes looked great, like everybody was having a fun time, except for the orgies. I wouldn’t know what an orgy even was for another five or so years, but they never ever looked any fun, everybody was so ghastly. And that is why I haven’t had one since.

I think you’ve got an unclosed b or strong tag in there somewhere.

It’s nice to know that the genius that is Albert Underzo is not forgotten.

Don’t forget RenĂ© Goscinny! For my money the Goscinny/Uderzo collaborations are mostly better than the ones Uderzo did by himself, although after Goscinny died, Uderzo did create Asterix and Son and Asterix and the Great Divide, two of my favourites.

@Mark: Actually, that’s Goscinny. Uderzo…it’s odd, usually they apepar together, but not in that scene. You can spot them earlier in that book, though, looking blank-eyed as witnesses to Asterix and Obelix’s trial.

Oops, you’re right. Thanks for the clarification, Salieri! I wasn’t one hundred percent certain and having started to read Asterix only after Goscinny sadly passed away, I’ve always associated Uderzo more closely with the comic.

Actually, you’re both mistaken.

That’s Jean Richard, a French actor.

#39 with the hieroglyphics is part of one of the funniest bits in the comic, with Obelix forcing that guy to talk. Great use of the medium!
