Asterix and the Class Act
by Goscinny & Uderzo; trans. Anthea Bell & Derek Hockridge (Orion, 2003)
A tantalising collection of Asterix curios that — if nothing else — makes one appreciate how much work must go into creating a full album. In the shorter form Goscinny and Uderzo push both delightfully and delightedly at the boundaries of their famous creations.
