    That's because I was in a french school
    and it was the only comic book I could find.

    Asterix is the biggest comix success in the francophone world
    Every child from france , belgium quebec etc begins to read it at small age, but you still can read them at adult age.
    there's a big theme park Asterix in France
    theres 2 Asterix movies , and the last one ( Mission Cléopatre) is one of the biggest success movie in France

    Smart humour, fresh drawings... can't get better than this

    more so than Les Schtroumpfs?

    They certainly had a huge crossover to the english world.

    I had a bunch of them them I was a little kid, I have no idea where I got them from... but they were absolutely mindblowing. A lot of my drawing training as a little kid came from copying them. It's absolute top-notch cartoon art, and the storylines kicked ass for ages... propzers magnificus.

    Like every other Canadian in this thread, I read these in elementary school during library time. I would even hide them so I wouldn't have to wait to sign them out.
    A fond memory of childhood.


    Les Schtroumpfs.... hahaha! nice one, K7.
