It started off brilliantly with
anno a.C.n.L: tota Gallia, quae, ut vides, est divisa in partes quinque, a Romanis occupata est... Totane? Minime! Vicus quidam a Gallis invictis habitatus invasoribus resistere adhuc non desinit. Neque vita facilis legionariis Romanis, quibus sunt castra bene munita Babaorum, Aquarium, Laudanum, Parvibonumque...
but then it just went downhill from there. There's some kind of anti-doping message slipped into it for the kiddies.

Σημείωση: Η κριτική που ακολουθεί είναι στα κυπριακά.

Την κυπριακή διάλεκτο συναντούμεν την συνήθως σε ποιήματα λαϊκών ποιητών, παραδοσιακά παραμύθκια, τραούδκια, ακόμα τζαι σε διηγήματα τζαι μυθιστορήματα (Οι γενιές της σιωπής) που διαδραματίζουνται όμως στην Κύπρο (συνήθως του παρελθόντος). Έτσι μόλις είδα τούντο βιβλίο την Κυριακή στο Cyprus Comic Con άρπαξα το δίχα δισταγμόν. Το να δκιαβάζεις κάτι της ποπ κουλτούρας στα κυπριακά εν κάτι το σπάνιο τζαι κάτι το εντυπωσιακό.

Bom momento para resenhar Asterix nos Jogos Olímpicos , logo após a realização das Olimpíadas do Rio de Janeiro, assim como foi criado originalmente em 1968, ano das Olimpíadas no México. O álbum, além de toda a graça e diversão de sempre, ainda pode informar sobre o origem dos jogos na Grécia antiga.

Esta é uma edição especial para comemorar os jogos de 2016! Foi lançada na França em 2016 e contém 16 páginas de “extras”! Além de destacar o próprio álbum, sua criação e detalhes, o ambiente na Fr

Finally the magic potion is of no use
27 August 2013

Well, this one picked up somewhat with a few more laugh out loud moments, as well as the typical on running joke (such as Obelix trying to get his share of the magic potion – he tries so much to get a taste and no matter what he does he always gets knocked back). One of the best jokes was when Obelix says to Fulliautomatix that Dogmatix is so much better because he can scratch his ear with his hind leg, and a few windows later we hear a cry 'so

In this one, the Gauls decide to take part in the Olympic games.

Fun, not too punny, even a twist at the end. One of the best Asterix books.

Magnifica crítica bem humorada aos costumes atuais, nomeadamente às visitas turísticas em excursão, ao comportamento do público nos eventos desportivos e ao próprio desporto atual com as representações clubísticas e nacionais, bem como à visão francesa cahuvinista sobre o Mundo.
História: Um legionário romano de um dos campos próximos da aldeia (Aquarium) é seleccionado para ir aos jogos olímpicos. Os Gauleses decidem particiar, mas para isso têm de se assumir como Romanos (critério para poderem

...et que le moins minable gagne!
Was man nicht alles für eine Goldmedaille, oder in der damaligen Zeit, einen goldenen Palmzweig, tut: Unsere unbeugsamen Gallier wollen den Römern nicht gönnen, wenigstens einmal gut vor dem alten Julius dazustehen. Da aber nur Griechen und Römer an den altzeitlichen Spielen in Olympia teilnehmen dürfen, bekommt "ganz Gallien ist von den Römern besetzt" eine Interpretation, die sowohl für die Römer als auch die Gallier schwer zu akzeptieren ist... aber was tut ma

Asterix and the Olympic Games is a great and interesting comic book that should be read by people who don't read comics but adored to comic lovers.This type of genre is an action/adventure with that slightest touch of humour. This story starts in a time where the Romans have taken over most of a country called Gaul,but still standing is one Gaulish Village against them and determined to keep there village alive.

Oh I love Asterix. It's been a constant in my life and along with Twinkle and Bunty was one of the first comics I read. In a fit of topicality, I picked up Asterix At The Olympic Games. And, very simply, it's great. This would be a superb introduction to the Olympics for somebody just starting to explore comics and language (and it could be a very nice parent / child joint-read).

The Asterix books are full of puns and wordplay. They're stamped into nearly every frame and the vitality of these is

Hay algo de este título que me desconcierta. No es la temática ni los eventos. Lo que me llama la atención son los dibujos y la presencia de de Ideafix o Idefix en el comic.

De partida, el perrito de Obelix aparece por primera vez en la vuelta a la Galia. Era un perro de Lutecia más bien peludo. Dicho título es el quinto de la serie. Es decir, el siguiente a "Los Juegos olímpicos".

Podríamos pensar que el perrito apareció en este libro y que, luego, buscaron un origen en el siguiente número. Per

A Roman, Gluteus Maximus, is training for the Olympic Games and thinks he's going to win until he encounters Asterix and Obelix and then he gets depressed. The tribe decides that they will compete in the games, and Asterix and Obelix will represent them.

They get to Greece and encounter Diabetes, their guide, and they visit Athens and then move on to Olympia for training.

However, they cannot compete in the games since they would be using magic potion (their version of steroids), and since Obelix

Buku inilah awal mula aku berkenalan dengan Asterix Prajurit Galia. Keuletan dan keharmonisan sebuah kehidupan di desa yang kecil ditengah kepungan benteng-benteng Romawi. Di sesi Olimpiade, Asterix menampilkan bahwa kejujuran adalah segalanya. Mencapai suatu tujuan tidak mesti menghalalkan segala cara. Meski Asterix sering meminum jamu kuat, tapi dalam lomba atletik dirinya memilih tidak menggunakan. Berbeda dengan sikap Romawi yang menanggung beban nama besar kerajaan adikuasa harus meraih kem ...more

Ever since I moved to Quebec in the early 90's everyone I meet seems to be obsessed with this old French comic book, Asterix. I never could understand why after watching a few cartoons, I found it very boring actually. I just read my first and last Asterix. It took me quite the effort to continue reading after just 4 pages, but at least I can now say that I have read an Asterix comic book, and I do indeed hate it.

The Romans are training an Olympic athlete in one of the camps surrounding the Gauls’ village, but their superhuman antics make him look like a fool. The complaints of the Romans give the Gauls the idea to go the Olympics as a team of their own. When the Romans object, the Gauls claim to be Roman citizens. When in Greece, the Gauls are soon forbidden from using their potion, while the Romans fall for the Gauls’ pathetic trick and find themselves out of luck.

This is my first Asterix book and I must say, I probably will not buy another one. It was very OK. Wasn't as funny as people make it out to be and though it is just 50 pages, it is definitely a slow read.

The story line has no depth. The story is too short. The drawings are not up to par. And I hate the fact that a lot of supporting characters look alike.

I guess you either are a tintin fan or an Asterix fan. I certainly am the former!

Eccezionale parodia dei giochi olimpici...e di molto altro.
I galli si mettono in testa di partecipare alla competizione. Così si imbarcano per la Grecia, ma dovranno vedersela con i Romani e i Greci, pronti a tutto pure di vincere.
In questo volume gli spunti interessanti sono molteplici. Al di là dell'evento principale, i Galli la prendono come un viaggio organizzato con crociera e visita alle bellezze di Atene. Non posso dire troppo perché rovinerei la sorpresa. Vi dico solo: leggetelo!

Inusuale trasferta all’estero della metà maschile del villaggio gallico. Storia semplice ma ricca di spunti umoristici non pretestuosi e ben inseriti nella trama (notevole la rivolta degli atleti greci che, dopo aver assistito agli eccessi alcolici e alimentari degli avversari romani, vogliono “decadere” anche loro e invocano cibarie pregiate).
Matti Karjalainen
Goscinnyn ja Uderzon kynä oli parhaimmillaan miekkaa mahtavampi; hyvänä esimerkkinä tästä on vuonna 1968 ilmestynyt "Asterix olympialaisissa". Suuren urheilujuhlan ympärille rakentuva seikkailu on kaikin puolin onnistunut, ja tekijät repivät huumoria erityisesti gallialaisten kisaturistien ennakkoluuloisesta ja ylemmyydentuntoisesta asenteesta.
Sophie Wender
Jul 20, 2012 Sophie Wender rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
Uderzo's character design is never than better than in this. Gaius Veriambitius and Gluteus Maximus are a perfect double act, the doping satire is still great, and everybody comes out of it well, even the nominal villains. You could have written this out verbatim as a screenplay and had a perfectly structured Asterix film, but instead they went and made Twelve Tasks, which is pale by comparison.
Christoph
Es mag an der holprigen Idee bzw. Ausgangssituation liegen - die Gallier erfahren durch Zufall von den olympischen Spielen und beschliessen daran teil zu nehmen, insbesondere weil sie sich jetzt als Teil des römischen Reichs sehr - aber dieser Band bietet eher seichte Unterhaltung im Vergleich zu den anderen Bänden.

I found the world play in this title was particularly funny ("The athletes, both Greek and Roman get into position for the first race: 20 laps up and down the stadium. They are all, at the present, tense..." heeheehee) but I also think this Asterix story is one that demonstrates Asterix at his best, as a clever little warrior who is also kind.

The Gauls compete in the Olympic Games sure to win with the aid of the magic potion until a twist is provided through the rule that no illegal substance can be taken during the Games! A fun read where everyone when discouraged takes to sweeping.

Como siempre, las historias de Asterix son entretenidas y llenas de un humor para grandes y chicos.

Lo único es que podría decirse que fomenta el doping, en cuanto el equipo de los Galos basa toda sus esperanzas de gloria olímpica en la pócima mágica...

Un'avventura che è quasi un capolavoro, il cui dialogo all'inizio, quando Asterix comprende che loro possono partecipare alle olimpiadi, in quanto romani, è un colpo da maestro nell'arte di rigirare la frittata.

Classic Asterix. Asterix and Obelix participate in the Olympic games, much to the chagrin of the of the Romans. All the men in the village join in to support Asterix and Obelix, and much hilarity ensues. There are even doping issues... Funny story.
