"Asterix and Obelix escort Getafix to the druids’ annual conference in the Forest of the Carnutes. Little do they know that the Goths are lying in ambush, ready to kidnap the Druid of the Year – who of course is Getafix! But what with Gauls, Goths and Romans all at odds, it’s hard to tell friend from foe … until Goths begin fighting Goths in the Asterixian Wars. In this adventure we see the hut of Cacofonix the bard perched high up in a tree for the first time. Songs such as The Noble Duke of York and It’s a Long Way to Tipperary are appreciated twenty centuries before their time … Albert Uderzo’s drawing is firming up and René’s wit and humour are wonderfully apparent in the choice of Gothic names."
