Asterix 38Here’s another discovery I found while researching German comics publishers yesterday…

The title of the new Asterix album, the second since Albert Uderzo retired, was announced at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair Tuesday!

22 October 2015 is the announced release date, but I can find no information from Orion Books, the British/American licensee.  I can’t even find the backlist?  [Speaking as a fan, Orion mucked up the release of the previous volume, Asterix and the Picts, in 2013.  Imagine being a Harry Potter fan, and then having to wait two months for books to be shipped to the United States!]

There is an official site for the book.  You can watch video interviews!
