Ich habe mich beim Lesen gefragt, was eigentlich den Stil von Uderzo ausmacht. Bei einer Reihe, die man seit man denken kann kennt, stellt man sich solche Fragen selten, seltsamerweise. Bei Franquin liebe ich seine Schnörkel und Schnurren, bei Hergé seine klare Linie, bei Morris die Farbspiele und manchmal experimentellen Perspektiven. Uderzo dagegen setzt voll auf Details, und er hat einen unglaublich kontrollierten, dabei gleichzeitig schwungvollen Strich. Bei Uderzo findet man keine e

Have Asterix and Obelix met their match?
14 September 2013

Well, a chief of a nearby village whose name is Moralsarelastix (that is the Chieftain's name, not the village's name) arrives at the little Gaulish village that we know so well with a cauldron full of money. As it turns out Ceaser has become bankrupt due to all of the wars that he has been fighting and so that he can continue fighting the wars, he has decided to raise some more taxes. However, despite the fact that Moralsarelastix happen

História crítica dos costumes contemporâneos na relação com o dinheiro e com as formas de o ganhar.
Um chefe vizinho colaboracionista com os romanps, conhecido por não ser muito fiável, confia aos nossos amigos um caldeirão cheio de sestércios alegadamente para não os entregar ao cobrador de impostos romano.
A honra da aldeia fica fiadora da guarda do caldeirão.
Porém nessa noite o caldeirão é roubado. E astérix que ficara por seu guardião, é banido da aldeia até voltar a encher o caldeirão de sest

This is # 13, and a fair, but not great addition to the series.

Summary from Wikipedia:

"Whosemoralsarelastix, the chief of a neighboring Gaulish village, is a mean and greedy man who often does business with the Romans. When the Romans instigate new taxes, Whosemoralsarelastix says he does not want to pay and asks the people of Asterix's village to safeguard a cauldron full of money, his village's treasures.

Asterix is left in charge of the cauldron full of sestertii which promptly gets stolen dur

Cauldron atau terjemahan Indonesianya Panci Sup Bawang adalah simbol dari ketundukan bangsa Galia terhadap Romawi. Setidaknya sebagian besar dari mereka, sebab masih ada satu desa, Armorix, yang tidak mau mengikuti aturan membayar upeti kepada Roma.

Tapi saat sepanci sistercii (mata uang Romawi) hilang saat berada dalam tanggung jawabnya, Asterix terpaksa bertanggung jawab untuk mencari gantinya. Obelix dengan setia menemaninya, walaupun dia sama sekali tidak tahu misi perjalanan mereka kali ini.
Asterix is put in charge of guarding a cauldron full onion soup flavoured gold from a neighbouring Gaulish village. Difficulties arise and A&O are forced to come up with a number of ways to try to make money - which mostly fail as they are not commercially minded fellows. A fun detour from the regular Asterix travels. Finally the Pirates get some good luck, despite an unfortunate and misguided foray into hospitality management.

Reread in French as practice.

This was a little harder to follow than /Astérix chez les Bretons/ as the subject matter is a lot less familiar - but it still works even for a reader only semi-competent in la belle langue.

It has some slightly more serious themes for an Asterix book: evading (Roman) taxation, financial imprudence, gambling, and the touching exile of the hero of the indomitable Gauls from his beloved village.

His many attempts to refill the cauldron with sestercii or denarii work well

Nice and funny one. This is 13h issue of Asterix series...

A neighboring Gaulish chief asks the people of Asterix’s village to help guard a cauldron full of money from the Romans. But the sneaky chief plans to double-cross everyone. So he steals back the cash just when Asterix is standing sentinel.
Can Asterix and Obelix recover the riches?
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!
Incredibly smart for a children's book- but honestly, a good book should be ageless, not just for children and this book definitely had a lot of funny themes for all ages. haha I'll always love reading them.
The smartest man in the Gaulish village is outsmart by the chief of another village. Asterix is in for a surprise throughout the storyline.

Six out of ten. CBR format.

A neighbouring Gaulish chief asks Asterix to protect a cauldron full of money from the Romans. They agree but what happens when the cauldron is stolen?

Asterix and Obelix are trying different jobs to make money, each job ended hilariously.

Ordboka er kjekk for å liste ut somme av ordspela.
go pirates!
Asterix the Cauldron – A&O learns the economics of labor as they are forced to earn back a cauldron of sesterces stolen on their watch; bright spoof of Milton Friedman’s and John Maynard Keynes’ theories (see also Obelix and Company).
On ne parle pas ici du meilleur Astérix. L'histoire est bien mais les blagues sont plutôt ordinaire. Je ne me suis pas tordu de rire. J'ai souri à plusieurs reprises. Les seules bouts où j'ai vraiment ri sont ceux avec les pirates et lorsque Obélix a le trac car il doit faire du théâtre. Le reste est bon mais sans plus.
Un épisode qui prend tout son sel une fois qu'on a appris comment marche les impôts... Parce qu'autrement, je me souviens n'avoir absolument rien compris à cet album lorsque je l'avais lu enfant.

Comme toujours, le côté décalé n'apparaît qu'après une relecture, en y portant un regard plus adulte.
Voor de allereerste keer ergerde ik me aan de lompheid van A&O. De beste grappen zitten op het einde -écht goede grappen, trouwens!-, maar blijf toch haken op drie sterren. Nog een keer nalezen, misschien dat er dan eentje bijkomt ... En nu: een lekkere kop uiensoep!
Angel Serrano
Un poblado galo vecino al de Asterix hace custodiar el importe de los impuestos a nuestro héroe, lo roba y espera que lo recuperen por ellos, hasta que Asterix, después de buscarlo por toda la Galia, lo vuelve a encontrar en manos del recaudador romano.
Un'avventura abbastanza nota, non proprio tra le mie preferite in quanto Asterix, almeno all'inizio, non brilla in arguzia e intelligenza come al solito. Ma lo sviluppo è piacevole e il lieto fine, una volta tanto, c'è anche per i pirati.
Luis Francisco
Es ist immer wieder erfrischend, diese Sammlung noch einmal lesen
I've read this series of Asterix (and Obelisk) in the 90's at my Grandmother and Grandfather's place. I loved this series back there. Asterix and his friend Obelisk shared so many great adventures together!
Karhum Ghassan

Nice and a funny comic had easier vocabulary than the other Asterix comics. Makes you laugh a lot as well as it is a bit weird cause why would coins smell like onion soup........!!!!!!!!
The chief of a neighbouring village asks Asterix to guard his cauldron of money but unfortunately it gets stolen. Poor wee Asterix is banished from the village :(
Ellsa Mayo
Remember i bought this at Encyclopedia Bookstore in Bontang, East Kalimantan. Funny how Obelisk think that Soup on the pot is more precious than the gold money on it.
