Hampir ketipu pas baca nama di judul yang berbau-bau Skandinavia, dan ternyata setelah dibuka segel, settingnya adalah di Negeri Seribu Satu Malam. Judulnya kayaknya plesetan dari 'Is no good'. Wazir Iznogoud ini karakter antagonis yang untungnya selalu sial. Cita-citanya hanya satu, yakni menggantikan Khalifah Harun al Pusingiyah sebagai khalifah.

Ansonsten ist das Konzept der Wortwitzparade halt langsam spürbar abgenutzt, Autor und Zeichner müssen sich immer abstruseren Ideen anpassen, die hin und wieder sehr bemüht (und auch sich wiederholend) wirken.

Di buku yang satu ini pengarang memasukkan Bajak Laut "Asterix" dan masukkan kisah mitos Yunani, mungkin Odiseus, saya kira2 aja, maklum belum baca Odiseus :)
