Reviews for Asterix and the Actress (#31 Asterix)

This latest volume featuring our Gallic friend Asterix has been a long time in the preparation, but his legion of fans will find it was well worth waiting for. As ever the cartoons are miniature works of art and the dialogue is both hilarious and pungently satirical. The story opens with a birthday celebration for Asterix and his pal Obelix. All is going riotously until the arrival of two matchmaking mothers bearing gifts. The gifts prove to be the problem - they're nicked from the somewhat disgruntled Pompey who aims to get them back. Soon the eponymous actress is on their trail - will Asterix fall for her luscious charms? Nothing about the riotous plot is simple and the ending comes with an especially witty twist. The illustrations are as detailed and inventive as we've come to expect, and this episode rightly takes its place among Asterix's many other classic adventures. (Kirkus UK)
