R. Goscinny & A. Uderzo - Asterix la rosa y la espada (02-034)

While in Spain I bought this one in a supermarket. It is quite funny, when you realise that whenever possible I do take some time off when I'm abroad to buy an Asterix in a different language or dialect. My collection has over 20 already, though I have found a website that has listed nearly one hundred different languages alone. It might be one of the most popular comics ever. It doesn't surprise me as there is quite a lot in the books of Asterix and Obelix, the two Gallic heroes. Plenty of historical facts are woven into the story, on the same time modern things are replanted in an era (half a century before our modern time starts) that doesn't have that much yet.

This one deals with feminism, quite funny. The word jokes are always funny, especially as sometime they translate literally from the original French, so you try to figure out what the joke was, but sometimes they also make a new joke of it in the dialect or language it has been translated to. I haven't seen any Spanish dialects yet though, so this Castillian one will have to do for the moment. Still, I keep searching for new languages.
