Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review ...furiously funny and hilariously jam-packed with timeless jibes and cracking contemporary swipes, plus an enchanting double-surprise ending. Asterix and the Chariot Race is a sure win and another triumphant addition to the mythic canon for laugh-seekers in general and all devotees of comics. * Comics Review * ...an easy, funny, packed read. It looks great, it never bored me for even a second, and it even made me laugh out loud a few times. * Pipeline Comics * ...the transition to new author/illustrator is seamless with all the best points of the originals faithfully reproduced. [...] Brilliantly written and illustrated; a worthy successor. * Parents in Touch * An energetic story with some very bad/good jokes, and just enough silly Roman-bashing, it's just the sort of thing we Asterix fans love * THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY on Asterix and the Missing Scroll *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)
