The Adventures of Asterix the Gaul is a Comic Book in the Franco-Belgian (Comical/Satirical) tradition created by Albert Uderzo (drawings) and René Goscinny (scripts). The first volume was published in 1959. As of 2013, 38 volumes have been released. The series follows the exploits of a village of indomitable Gauls around the year 50 B.C. as they resist Roman occupation by the mighty Julius Caesar. They do so by means of a magic potion, brewed by their druid called Getafix, which gives the recipient superhuman strength.The protagonist, the titular character Asterix, along with his friend Obelix has various adventures. Many of the stories have them travel to foreign countries, though others are set in and around their village. The lecture will focus on the Roman Military, Architecture, Art and Lifestyle elements that are present throughout the Comic Books.
