Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably the best Asterix ever written the Great Crossing is definitely my favorite episode, the image of Asterix as the Statue of Liberty is just amazing. If you've never read Asterix, this is maybe the episode to start with

Editorial Reviews

The Asterix books represent the very summit of our achievement as a literary race. In Asterix one finds all of human life. The fact that the books were written originally in French is no matter.

Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge, Asterix's translators since the very beginning, have made great books into eternal flames.-THE TIMES
