Asterix And The Secret Weapon (Asterix #29)
A woman bard? That’s unheard of in Ancient Gaul. So, when the mothers in Asterix’s town want to replace Cacofonix with Bravura, the men are horrified. But, Bravura hits the right notes musically, and she proves very valuable when Julius Caesar sends in his secret weapon.
After re-reading this today, I realised we should all re-read the books we loved as kids. This one was incredibly sexist and a shame to read as a woman. No doubt the art is just fantastic, but that's about it.
Six out of ten. CBR format.
All the mothers of the village get together to employ a female bard to replace Cacofonix. This turns out to be useful when Caesar employs a troop of female legionaires to finally conquer the Gauls.
