    One thought on “Asterix and Cleopatra”

    1. Astérix et Cléopâtre = Asterix and Cleopatra (Asterix, #6), René Goscinny Asterix and Cleopatra is the sixth book in the Asterix comic book series by René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo. It was first published in serial form in Pilote magazine, issues 215-257, in 1963. The book begins with an argument between Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, and Julius Caesar, in which Caesar belittles the accomplishments of the Egyptian people. Infuriated, Cleopatra makes a wager with Caesar promising to build a new [...]

    2. "You can't argue with Cleopatra. She may have a foul temper, but such a lovely nose!"- Getafix the DruidFor the first time, another historical character other than Caesar enters the Asterix universe. I salute Goscinny and Uderzo on their conception of Cleopatra as a tantrum-throwing terror, permanently stuck in teenage. Even though this may be a possible crime against her memory, their conception of the queen is somehow sweet and endearing.This is the first adventure where Dogmatix becomes an in [...]

    3. Asterix comes to save Egytian nationalism22 July 2012 This album was somewhat more entertaining that the last one that I read though I am not really sure why. While Ceaser has always been portrayed as the villain in the Asterix albums, we begin to see more of his scheming and manipulative nature in this one. Cleopatra and Ceaser are having an argument as to whether Egypt is in decline or not, and Cleopatra decides to make a bet with him to build a palace for Ceaser in three months, however the o [...]

    4. It's amazing what a pretty nose will get you.Old ReviewGo read Asterix, any of them. Honestly. Even if you're an adult. I read them first when I was around 8-10, and I return to them periodically. There is one level of humor for adults, another for children. Adults will crack up over every name. Honestly, what isn't funny about a druid named Getafix? This edition to the series is great. Though there is no pun on Cleopatra's name, there are pretty of comments about her nose. A nice and amusing us [...]

    5. Nous sommes en 50 avant Jésus-Christ. Toute la Gaule est occupée par les Romains Toute ? Non ! Un village peuplé d'irréductibles Gaulois résiste encore et toujours à l'envahisseur

    6. Ah yes, a lovely nose indeed. As cartoony as this Cleopatra happens to be she sort of reminds me of a girl I once had a crush on back when I was around the age of 19 or 20. Similar features, Italian rather than Egyptian, a lovely lass indeed. A mad thought crossed my mind, send the girl a big bunch of flowers, yeah, she might like that. Yeah, that didn't go so well lovely nose though.It's been a long time indeed since I read an Asterix comic, possibly as far back as me being a wee lad under the [...]

    7. Julius Caesar, while hanging out with Cleopatra, makes fun of Egypt's has-been status as a great empire. Sure, they built the pyramids, but that was thousands of years agowhat have they done lately? Cleopatra defiantly claims they can build a palace to Caesar in Alexandria in three months. Caesar will acknowledge Egpyt's greatness if she can pull it off. She summons the best architect of Alexandria, Edifis, for the job. He knows he'll need magical powers to pull it off, but he knows this druid i [...]

    8. A receita de humor de Goscinnny e Uderzo continuava em seu sexto álbum: nomes engraçados cheios de trocadilhos, críticas a problemas contemporâneos, transposição de fatos da época para o mundo romano, gozação com os franceses e outros povos etc. E já começava logo na capa de Asterix e Cleópatra, em que os gauleses vão obviamente ao Egito! Justamente, a capa original era outra. Acontece que a história é de 1963, ano em que também estreou a superprodução “Cleópatra”, com Eli [...]

    9. The series of Asterix is absolutely hilarious, and there's nothing like it! The main setting for the series is an unnamed coastal village in Armorica, a province of Gaul (modern France), in the year 50 BC. Julius Caesar has conquered nearly all of Gaul for the Roman Empire. The little Armorican village, however, has held out because the villagers can gain temporary superhuman strength by drinking a magic potion brewed by the local village druid, Getafix.The main protagonist and hero of the villa [...]

    10. Outraged by the comments of Julius Ceasar that the Egyptians are a spend civilization, queen Cleopatra assures the Roman leader she’ll build him a glorious palace in just three months to prove her empire hasn’t lost its glory. Struggling architect Edifis is assigned to complete the task and – shocked by the workload and the slim amount of time he has for it – he quickly travels to the Gaul village of Asterix, Obelix and Getafix, begging the trio to assist him with his work. With the help [...]

    11. far far away from the village of gaul; in the heart of the land of the pharaohs the pretty cleopatra, exquisite nose and all, is engaged in a furious battle of words with none other than julius caesar, the very head of the roman empire. dear old julius has said that the egyptians are not what they used to be the days of the great pharaohs are over. and had it not been for her graciousness' sporting spirit, i'm afraid his day would be over too. the queen on hearing caesar's comment challenged him [...]

    12. ASTERIX EN CLEOPATRA tel sekerlik as een van die heel beste Asterix-verhale. Die reis na Egipte, die spanning oor die oprig van die paleis en die vindingrykheid van die Galliërs skep 'n klassieke avontuur. Dit skep ook die kans vir vele grappies en woordspelings. Soos in die vorige vertalings van Sonya van Schalkwyk-Barrois is die Afrikaans vol wonderlike vindings. Let op na die een strokiesprent in die koerant wat die argitek Akkedis lees: Adonis-hulle. Lekker! Maar op een belangrike punt, een [...]

    13. Architektur interkulturellNa, da soll mal einer sagen, Asterix und Obelix seien nicht aktuell. In einer Szene diskutieren sie darüber, wie sich so ein ägyptischer Obelisk mitten im gallischen Dorf machen würde, parallel erscheint passend dieser Artikel bei Spiegel-Online. So pompöse Architektur muss man aber mögen, zumindest Abraracourcix, der Häuptling des Dorfs, ist da wie ich eher konservativ-gallisch veranlagt.Neben diesen Anspielungen auf die französische Geschichte finden sich auch [...]

    14. Наздраве с глътка магическа отвара! А вместо фойерверки - всеки римски легионер ще види звезди посред бял ден! Да посрещнем Новата Година с едни любими герои от 50 години пр. Хр които със сигурност ще продължават да векуват! :) Прочетете ревюто на "Книжни Криле":knijnikrile.wordpress/201

    15. Asterix memang cocok disebut sebagai komik "historical fiction" (^,,^)Suka sama Cleopatra & Julius di siniAku suka banget, Ayah juga suka baca Asterix ini, si Beruk (adek) juga suka~Sampe sekarang kalo nemu yang bekas pun masih berusaha ngoleksi (^ ^)

    16. Not an awful lot to say Great fun with Asterix and Obelix, Getafix and Dogamatix as they help build a palace for Julius Caesar in Egypt on behalf of Cleopatra and her lovely nose.

    17. Bella storia con bei personaggi (anche minori). Brillante l’uso umoristico dei geroglifici nei balloon.

    18. Selkeästi jo erilainen tarina saatiin aikaan kun lähetettiin Asterix, Obelix, Idefix ja Akvavitix Egyptiin rakentamaan Kleopatran arkkitehdille upea kaupunki. Tämä liittyi taas vedonlyöntiin, kuten edellisessäkin kirjassa. Tällä kerralla Kleopatra (jolla muuten on hyvin sievä nenä) lyö vetoa itse Julius "Julle" Caesarin kanssa. Muistan että tämä oli pikkujunnuna suosikki Asterixeista, ja olihan tämä tähänastisista selvästi paras.

    19. I hadn't read this book since I was a kid. I had forgotten how much fun it is, and the play on words is hilarious! I enjoyed it so much. I read my French version and wondered how successful the English translation is, but it seems from the other reviews that wordplay is also the key humor in these books.

    20. Numérobis, un architecte alexandrin cherche son ami Panoramix le druide gaulois pour l'aider à réaliser un défi dont il est chargé entre la reine Cléopatre et César: construire à César son plus beau palais en Egypte.Avec l'aide de ses amis Astérix et Obélix, Panoramix réussira-t-il le projet?Pour les 5-12 ans

    21. Ça y est, Idéfix est enfin là.J'adore le film qui a été fait à partir de cette BD. C'est assez curieux d'ailleurs de se rendre compte que certaines images du film sont des cases de la BD. Et puis les dessins sont identiques, ainsi que certaines répliques (on s'y attend un minimum mais tout de même).

    22. Can Cleopatra build a temple to rival those of Caesar? Will Caesar's wily attenpts at sabotage win the bet for him? Asterix and Obelix bring a different work ethic to the Egyptian construction site with the help of the druid's magic potion, of course.

    23. A great comic book and time killer. I'v read it over and over again but if your looking for a more advance book, this is not what you want.
