Asterix and the Chariot Race
by Jean-Yves Ferri; ill. Didier Conrad; trans. Adriana Hunter (Orion, 2017)
Having survived the transition to new writer and illustrator, Asterix now leaps the last hurdle (in English at least) by finding someone to succeed translator par excellence Anthea Bell. The Chariot Race is the usual good fun—visually expressive, witty and layered.
