This is the first of Asterix comics I've read, and the whole series is very funny and engrossing. The premise is that of a tiny community in ancient Gaul that has firmly resisted the occupation of the Roman Empire thanks to a magic potion produced by the local druid that grants exceptional strength. In retrospect, I learned quite a bit about the Roman military through this series. It has been translated into a huge number of languages, but they're almost not worth reading in anything but the original French or a romance language as most of the humor is lost when it is translated to English.
