Asterix Omnibus Papercutz Edition Volume 8 SC – Papercutz continues the adventures of the fearless Gaul, Asterix. Collecting three graphic novels, this volume features a fishing trip gone wrong as Asterix and Obelix end up on the shores of North America, and neither will be the same. Then Obelix gets the spotlight as his delivery service gets a Roman update, and then the Gauls and Belgians unite against Caesar’s forces, but how long can this alliance last? This volume features the final story by co-writer Rene Goscinny, and a new afterword by Alexander Simmons that puts Asterix’s adventures in historical and cultural context.
