The Gaul

A MAGIC LADDER COMIC!

ASTERIX

In the year 50 B.C. after a long struggle the ancient Gauls had been conquered by the Romans...

Chiefs like Vercingetorix had to lay their weapons at Caesar's feet.

Peace reigns, disturbed only by the occasional attacks of Germans, speedily repulsed...

ALL GAUL IS OCCUPIED...

YET ONE VILLAGE STILL HOLDS OUT AGAINST THE INVADERS. ONE SMALL VILLAGE SURROUNDED BY ROMANS...

AND NOW WE MEET OUR HERO, THE WARRIOR ASTERIX, JUST OFF HUNTING AS USUAL

ACCIDENTS WILL HAPPEN....

All efforts to subdue these proud Gauls have failed, and Ceasar asks himself...

But WE COME BACK

OK WE GO
