This graphic album was a great find from a pile of clearance books at National Book Store in Centrio. There were a few other Asterix titles on sale but this was the only one was by it original creators Rene Goscinny and Albert Uderzo. It was at half-price off so it was very hard not to buy.

Despite it being half-price off, truth be told, I was hesitating to getting it. It is not that I don't enjoy Franco-Belgian comics, I enjoy Herge's Tintin and Peyo's Smurfs. It was that the first few Asterix I

Once again this entire adventure takes place in the little village we know so well. One of Chief Vitalstatistix's nephews has been sent from Lutetia (Paris) out to Amorica to toughen him up, and as it turns out he comes across as one of those young people who do not understand the concept of work. He arrives in a sporty chariot (made in Milan, which made me think of the Ferarri) and in a way brings the idea of the city life out to the country. However, th

The blood-thirsty Norsemen have a problem. They don’t know what fear is and since they pride themselves on knowing everything, they must learn fear. Besides, “fear lends you wings”, so by learning fear, Normans can fly like birds. So they set out to find someone who can teach them fear and by random, pick up Gaul and specifically the beach near our Gaulish village to go about their task. Our Gaulish villagers do not know fear either, but luckily for the Normans, the Gauls have a visitor from Lut ...more
I recently read a few books from the series Asterix. It’s about how Asterix and Obelix go on adventures with all walks of life. These characters are known as Gauls, a certain ethnic group in northern Europe. I found these actually quite funny, and really interesting, considering I do not even really enjoy comics. The illustrations were the same through out each book in the collection, which completely amazes me. Although they can seem a little childish, they have worldly jokes that most children ...more
Asterix e i Normanni (ovvero i Vichinghi) è la nona storia, in ordine cronologico, degli irriducibili galli. Stavolta Asterix & Obelix affrontano nientepopodimeno che un'invasione vichinga (tra l'altro questa avventura è stata anche portata al cinema col titolo "Asterix e i Vichinghi" nel 2006) e un compito arduo: trasformare il nipote di Abraracourcix, Menabotte, in un vero guerriero gallico. Inizialmente vedremo che non sarà un compito facile, ma quando sbarcano i Vichinghi le cose cambian ...more

Opinião completa em:

Adiante. Com sabor a saudade, li Astírix e os Normandos para tentar compreender um pouco o passado deste povo para uma cadeira de Cultura Medieval, mas, sinceramente, o que acabou por acontecer foi meia hora de divertimento puro com o olho clínico abandonado, trocado pelo prazer da leitura e observação.

A história não poderia ser mais hilariante, ela própria um trocadilho típico dos que Goscinny costuma fazer com os seus diálogos peculi

i was supposed to cram in these asterix books to meet my 53-book challenge for 2014
better luck next time, slacker (me)
happy new year to everyone

This is the ninth Asterix adventure and this time Asterix meets the Normans.

Justforkix is the nephew of the village chief Vitalstatistix and is sent to the village from his native Lutetia (Paris) because he is soft and needs toughening up. Obelix suggests thumping him but Asterix disagrees. Meanwhile the Norman chief is concerned that his Normans don't know the meaning of fear so goes off to Gaul in search of it. Unfortunately the village they end up at is Asterix's village and they also don't k

La storia non è avvincente, ma i normanni che vogliono essere terrorizzati (perché non sanno che cos’è la paura e non desiderano passare da ignoranti) sono memorabili. Interessante l’impatto culturale del giovane Menabotte sul provinciale villaggio gallico. È poi bello vedere Assurancetourix finalmente in primo piano.
Why would you go to Asterix to find out what fear was? But the best thing about this series is the fact that Asterix has intelligence.

Normans don't know fear. This, they consider to be a serious drawback as it is impossible to cure hiccups. More importantly, they have heard that fear lends you wings and flying is the only art they haven't mastered. They set out on a journey to master the art of fear. However the destination they chose is a small Gaulish village of Asterix and Obelix where again no one knows fear. Luckily for the Normans, these Gaul's have guest amongst them from a different country who happen to know a great d ...more
Asterix à la crème

Die Normannen kommen! Ein paar Jahrhunderte, bevor sie die Welt in Angst und Schrecken versetzen, machen die Normannen einen kleinen Ausflug nach Gallien, um das Einzige kennenzulernen, was ihnen bisher unbekannt ist: Die Angst. Da sind sie bei unserem wohlbekannten, kleinen gallischen Dorf natürlich genau richtig. Doch nicht durch Prügelei wird den furchtlosen Invasoren schließlich angst und bange, sondern durch einen völlig unerwarteten, viel schrecklicheren Gegner...

Die Aste
Die Noormanne wil leer wat dit beteken om bang te wees. Die Galliërs is nie goeie leermeesters in hierdie opsig nie - maar Allamapstix se nefie, Spiekerix, is egter angsbevange. Liederlix speel ook 'n groter rol in die verloop van die verhaal as gewoonlik: ydelheid kan 'n mens soms tot hoë hoogtes aanvuur.

Die verhaal van Goscinny en Uderzo is hoogs vermaaklik en snaaks - dit hoort tot een van die beste verhale in die reeks. Van Schalkwyk-Barrois se vertaling munt weer eens uit met sprankelende w

Este é dos que merece as 5 estrelas. História bem construída, coerente no seu desenvolvimento e com a crítica à modernidade que faz dos livros muito divertidos.
Astérix e Obélix vão cuidar do jovem sobrinho do chefe da aldeia (nesta edição, Matasétix) que vem de Lutécia com todos os tiques dos jovens irreverentes, para ver se lhe ensinam hábitos saudáveis. Ao mesmo tempo um grupo de Normandos, vem numa expedição para aprender o que é o medo, uma vez que não conhecem o Medo. E, ao que sabem, o Med

Having Vikings visit the Gauls to find out the meaning of fear seems unusual, until you realise that the Chiefs visiting nephew is the biggest coward going! Lots of fun, and this was adapted into the movie Asterix And The Vikings.
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!

Eg hadde ikkje gløymt det middels bra piggtrådmusikk-greiene, men at vikingane lagde all mat i fløyte (både jordbær og villsvin) oppdaga eg på nytt.

It's only when you know fear that you become truly brave. Courage lies in overcoming your fear.

A fine work of art, as usual.

Un comic ideal par quienes quieren volar a como dé lugar; ora por conocer el miedo, ora por desfallecer de la risa y ascender al Cielo.

very funny story. read this in school days first, in bengali. and discovered now that it doesn't loose a bit now.

Probablemente, la historia de Asterix que más me ha hecho reír en mi vida. La cara de los Normandos ya son lo suficientemente graciosas para pasarla bomba sin leer los diálogos siquiera. Pero si los sumamos, el resultado es insuperable. Lo debo haber leído unas cinco veces, así que tiro una fecha aproximada. Seguro termine rerrerrerreleyéndolo en algún momento y ahí lo rerreseñe.
Bonus: Si pudiera ponerle una estrellita más, se la pondría por la cantidad de risas extra que me sacó el bañero de la

De los mejores que he leído de la saga, lejos... me reí cada tres páginas en promedio.
The Normans don't know what is fear, so they set out to learn the meaning of fear. Our Gaulish village has a young spunky visitor in the form of, Justforkix, Chief Vitalstatix's nephew, who is sent to Gaul so that they can 'make a man out of him'. Life in Gaul goes on as usual - fights, celebrations, boar hunting, delivering menhirs. The Normans land up at the shores of our little Gaulish village.

The Normans learn the meaning of fear, Justforkix conquers his fear, Cacofonix has his two minutes

Seven out of ten. CBR format.

Normans don't feel fear so they travel to Gaul to discover what it's all about.

Obelix doing the rock dance was the highlight!

One can never get bored of Asterix!
Excellent. Le cousin normand "hippy".
Great light relief :-)
A hilarious Asterix entry, this time introducing the Normans and the Gauls’ attempts to toughen up the snobbish, effeminate nephew of Vitalstatistix. The Normans invade Gaul in order to learn the meaning of fear (literally). Along the way we get a repetitive but funny parody of Norman cuisine (any meat with creme sauce).
