Julius Caesar has conquered nearly all of Gaul for the Roman Republic. The little Armorican village, however, has held out because the villagers can gain temporary superhuman strength by drinking a magic potion brewed by the local village druid, Getafix.
His chief is Vitalstatistix. The main protagonist and hero of the village is Asterix , who, because of his shrewdness, is usually entrusted with the most important affairs of the village. He is aided in his adventures by his rather corpulent and slower thinking friend, Obelix, who, because he fell into the druid's cauldron of the potion as a baby, has permanent superhuman strength because of this, Getafix steadily refuses to allow Obelix to drink the potion, as doing so would have a dangerous and unpredictable result.
Obelix is usually accompanied by Dogmatix , his little dog. Except for Asterix and Obelix, the names of the characters change with the language. Asterix and Obelix and sometimes other members of the village go on various adventures both within the village and in far away lands.
Places visited in the series include parts of Gaul Lutetia , Corsica etc. Humour[ edit ] The humour encountered in the Asterix comics often centers around puns , caricatures , and tongue-in-cheek stereotypes of contemporary European nations and French regions. Much of the humour in the initial Asterix books was French-specific, which delayed the translation of the books into other languages for fear of losing the jokes and the spirit of the story.
Some translations have actually added local humour: In the Italian translation, the Roman legionaries are made to speak in 20th-century Roman dialect, and Obelix's famous Ils sont fous ces romains "These Romans are crazy" is translated as Sono pazzi questi romani, humourously alluding to the Roman abbreviation SPQR.
In another example: Hiccups are written onomatopoeically in French as hips, but in English as "hic", allowing Roman legionaries in more than one of the English translations to decline their hiccups absurdly in Latin hic, haec, hoc. The newer albums share a more universal humour, both written and visual. Certain rules are followed most of the time such as Gauls and their neighbours having an "-ix" suffix for the men and ending in "-a" for the women; for example, Chief Vitalstatistix so called due to his portly stature and his wife Impedimenta often at odds with the chief.
The male Roman names end in "-us", echoing Latin nominitive male singular form, as in Gluteus Maximus , a muscle-bound athlete whose name is literally the butt of the joke. Gothic names present-day Germany end in "-ic", after Gothic chiefs such as Alaric and Theoderic ; for example Rhetoric the interpreter.
Greek names end in "-os" or "-es"; for example, Thermos the restaurateur. British names end in "-ax" and are often puns on the taxation associated with the later United Kingdom ; examples include Valuaddedtax the druid, and Selectivemploymentax the mercenary. Other nationalities are treated to Pidgin translations from their language, like Huevos y Bacon, a Spanish chieftain whose name, meaning eggs and bacon , is often guidebook Spanish for tourists , or literary and other popular media references, like Dubbelosix a sly reference to James Bond 's codename "".
Most of these jokes, and hence the names of the characters, are specific to the translation; for example, the druid named Getafix in English translation is Panoramix in the original French and Miraculix in German.

The warrior first hallucinates American-style emblematic eagles ; the second time, he sees stars in the formation of the Stars and Stripes ; the third time, he sees stars shaped like the United States Air Force roundel.
Asterix's inspired idea for getting the attention of a nearby Viking ship which could take them back to Gaul is to hold up a torch; this refers to the Statue of Liberty which was a gift from France. Corsicans are proud, patriotic, and easily aroused but lazy, making decisions by using pre-filled ballot boxes.
They harbour vendettas against each other, and always take their siesta. Greeks are chauvinists and consider Romans, Gauls, and all others to be barbarians.

But while Asterix and Obelix were unable to communicate with them, they are perfectly able to understand the Cimbres. Their names end in "-ten", perhaps similar to those of the Normans, whose names end in "-sen". Belgians speak with a funny accent, snub the Gauls, and always eat sliced roots deep-fried in bear fat. They also tell Belgian jokes.
