Ceaser is trying to raise more money and troops to go and fight some more foreign campaigns however is having some trouble with the Senate (don't we all?). Basically they don't want to approve any more wars until Ceaser gets Rome's house in order, which basically means subduing the rebellious village in Northern Gaul that we all know so well. However, as has become clear by now, because they have a magic potion, defeating them by shear force of

Asterix lagi-lagi berhasil menggagalkan penyerbuan Romawi ke Galia kendati Julius Caesar telah mengutus seorang penghasut. Si Penghasut ditugaskan untuk merusak tatanan masyarakat Galia dengan taktik adu domba. Si Penghasut berhasil menjalankan tugasnya. Bahkan Asterix dan Obelix sendiri hampir menjadi korbannya kalau bukan karena keakraban mereka.

Dengan keadaan kacau balau di Galia, pasukan Romawi akhirnya menyerbu. apalagi setelah Si Penghasut berhasil meyakinkan Panglima Romawi bahwa ia telah
This has always been one of my favourite Asterix episodes. Most of the action takes place around the village, leaving lots of room for the storyline and dialogues. Psychological warfare at its finest.

Neste episódio César tenta uma nova abordagem no ataque à aldeia Gaulesa. Diagnosticando que a força da sua resitência é a sua uniõa. Pensa promover as quesílias entre eles introduzindo um Romano que tem por atividade criar discussões e zaragatas entre todos. De facto por todo o lado onde passa (entre os amigos de césar, entre os piratas, entre os viajantes da galé que o transporta, entre os legionários) semeia a discórdia. Também o conseguirá na aldeia, quer entre os homens quer entre as mulher ...more

The sixtheenth volume, and one of my personal favorites. It is very witty and well written. In fact, for a comic strip, it is quite brilliant. The ugly, creepy looking guy is probably the best and most formidable oppononent the village faced.

And the Wiki summary starts:

"The resistance of the Gaulish village against the Romans causes friction between dictator Julius Caesar and the Roman Senate. With their Magic Potion which gives them superhuman strength and is known only to their druid Getafix,
Those cunning Romans send an agent provocateur to the village to dominate the indomitable Gauls by spreading rumour and mischief. Everyone argues with everyone else resulting in copious fights and shouting matches. The camp Aquarium troops develop a cunning form of psychological warfare involving a large club. It culminates in the famous "Battle of the Village" with a four pronged attack and the accidental loss of a Pirate ship.

15th book of Asterix Obelix series. Funny story.

Julius Caesar resorts to psychological warfare to defeat the little Gaulish village: he’s sent expert troublemaker Tortuous Convolulus to set friend against friend. Jealousy soon spreads as the Gauls become suspicious of each other. Somehow, Asterix must outwit the wily Convolulus.
Mi Astérix favorito. El argumento es bastante ingenioso e incluye varias peleas con los pescados de Ordenalfabétix, una batalla con gráfico a toda página, varias escenas de Abraracúrcix indignado con sus porteadores o una viñeta en la que medio pueblo disimula en mitad de una pelea. Logradísimo.

Romans have a new weapon against the Gauls: Tortuous Convolvulus, a natural troublemaker, who causes conflict and arguments just with his presence. He manages to tear the village apart, but in the end Asterix fixes things. Clever plan, though.

I guess this one is the most 'serious' album of Asterix, with real issue and real danger that faced by the gaul. Strategy and manipulation over human's feelings and interest can be danger if there is not enough trust and respect for each other.
I enjoy this so much for the sense of thriller in it.
Linda Hall
AWESOME!!! There is nothing that comes close to Asterix - I have the whole series, both on e-books and hard-copy and they are some of most treasured possessions. I grew up with them and they are simply the best!

Recommends it for: Everyone.
Up till now, this is my favorite! A great sense of humor and a refined knowledge of human psychology! Looking forward to reading more of Asterix's adventures.

I loved this story! A Roman agent (very conveniently named Torturous) is sent to Gaul to divide the Gauls. He manages it wonderfully by spreading lies leading to many hilarious fights.
Confusion sets off in the Gaulish village when a cunning Roman agent is sent by Caesar. The story is full of laughter, entertainment, confusion, and ending with a fight of course. Loved it!

Julius Caesar’s political opponents in the Senate are ridiculing his efforts to pacify Gaul, so he releases a seditious troublemaker from prison in the hopes that he will sow discord among the Gauls. Wherever this agent goes, chaos and jealousy go with him, and this is one the funniest parts of the story. Both the Gauls and the Roman garrison are unprepared for this man’s subterfuge, and his own methods prove to be his undoing.

Excellent, hilarious, and action-packed.

Seven out of ten. CBR format.

Julius Caesar sends an expert troublemaker to defeat the Gauls by setting friend against friend. As the jealousy spreads Asterix must outwit the roman.

Bellino, però secondo me è un poco ripetitivo, mancano le trovate geniali
Come on , It's a Asterix and Obelix adventure. They are all good.
Anna Rakhmawati
comme d'habitude, l'asterix et obelix sont drole. c'est bonne BD. J'aime ca! :)
Altra divertente storia di Asterix, dove stavolta un piccolo romano riuscirà a mettere zizzania in tutto gli abitanti del villaggio gallico, ma anche nell'accampamento romano...

i want to read this book
Much better than the first Asterix book I read, which was a later book only written by one of the two authors. This had some great word puns and an excellent moral. I actually laughed out loud at the bit about the old Roman Senator Stradivarius: "And in the Roman Senate, old Senator Stradivarius is getting all strung up in his well modulated tones, calculated to rouse a crowd to fever pitch, he is settling an old score with Caesar..."
Seri yang paling "massive dari semua seri yang ada. Ceritanya si Roma mau ambil alih desanya Asterix, trus mereka mati2an lindungin dengan ramuan ajaibnya. Trus seluruh Roma bersatu buat ambil desanya.. berhasilkah???
Una delle mie avventure preferite di sempre: riuscirà il perfido Detritius a sconvolgere il villaggio gallico che sempre e comunque restiste all'invasore romano?
Detritius è veramente un villain raro, un manipolatore di prima grandezza, un seminatore di zizzania nato, la peggiore minaccia che Caio Giulio abbia mai mandato contro Asterix e Obelix.

I used to read Asterix comic books all the time when I was a kid. This was my favourite. I'm not quite sure why but I was so amazed when I realized that one person can make a difference. Even in a bad way. One person could split two best friends with just his words. Or even worse. This story definetely changed the way I saw things forever.
Jacques le fataliste et son maître
Capolavoro. Ottima l’idea, bello il personaggio di Tullius Detritus (il seminatore di zizzania), ammirevole l’intreccio di intrighi in cui il villaggio resta impastoiato, efficacissima la resa della marea montante della zizzania – una presenza reale, incarnata nei balloon, orridi blob verdognoli che incombono sui personaggi… :-)
