When I visited relatives in France in my early teens, the newspapers ran a comic strip called Asterix, about the exploits of the title character/hero and his village of ancient Gauls as they resist Roman occupation.
The Asterix series is the most popular of French comics in the world. To date, the comic strip has ran over 50 years, and 325 million copies of 34 Asterix books have been sold worldwide.
The illustration above is the cover of Asterix Conquers Rome. Just another Roman orgy!Vive Asterix!
