“As tradition demands, our friends are going on trips again in the new album,” announced the German publisher Egmont Ehapa. The content says: “While Asterix and Obelix are playing a game of Gaulish chess, the druid Miraculix, who must have just dozed off, suddenly starts up and announces that an old friend urgently needs his help.” The reader will find out more on October 21, when the 39th volume appears. The duo Jean-Yves Ferri (text) and Didier Conrad (drawings) are working together for the fifth time and continue the tradition of René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo. Ferri reveals: “We put a mythological beast at the center of the adventure. My choice fell on the griffin: half eagle, half lion and with the ears of a horse – an enigmatic creature!”
385 million volumes sold
With 385 million albums and translations in 111 languages and dialects sold, the Asterix series is one of the most successful series worldwide. A few days ago it was the first anniversary of the death of Asterix co-inventor Albert Uderzo. Ferri and Conrad explained: “Albert trusted that we would respect the characters he created together with René Goscinny and what they stand for and continue them in new adventures. With the new album we are setting the mission that he has entrusted us away. “
