Currently I have used a PD image I found in the commons. That is the best I could find that of a loaf of bread and a wine glass, I thought this image most appropriate since the our Gauls love to eat and drink. If you have come across a better looking image or a non copyrighted image from a Asterix comic to point me towards it.

Be nice if someone made a winged helmet :-P That'd look like Asterix. Or a crushed roman helmet Ghilz 06:30, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
A winged helmet would surely look super.--PremKudvaTalk 04:45, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

Top Importance[edit]

There's a discussion on which comic-related articles should be listed as "Top Importance" on the importance scale, and I feel this article should not be included. If any user disagrees or wishes to contribute, please do so there. Argento Surfer (talk) 14:42, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

popular in the U.S. too[edit]

The article emphasizes that Asterix is popular in Europe and French speaking countries but I'm here to tell you many people on this side of the Atlantic like it too. I was introduced to it when I was eleven in the public school library. I loved it and knew other kids who did too. I don't know what the stats of Asterix readers in the States are but anyone who loves comics here, knows about Asterix. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:04, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

Well, in Europa even people, who don't know anything about Comics, know at least Asterix. Plus he is by far more popular then Spiderman or Batman, at least regarding the comics, maybe not so, when it comes to the (horrible) movies. It is without doubt, that the interest in the United States is on a particular low level compared with other countries all over the world. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:52, 16 April 2016 (UTC)

Family row?[edit]

Has anyone noticed that the cited "source" for the supposed "family row" (This provoked a family row.[7]) following Uderzo's selling of his rights is just a stupid funny letter begging him not sell the recipe for the magic potion? There's no evidence in there at all. (talk) 02:47, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Good spot. Removed it. There may have been a family row but I'm sure that they all made up and had a big feast afterwards. Btljs (talk) 20:55, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Goths fighting each other[edit]

The article currently says "Goths (Germans) are disciplined and militarists, they are composed of many races that fight each other (which is a reference to Germany before Otto von Bismarck and to East and West Germany after the Second World War)". I disagree with that being a reference, as the actual historical Goths were subdivided into the Visigoths and Ostrogoths. Easier explanation is thus that this was simply taken over. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:47, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

The whole "Ethnic stereotypes" section looks like OR to me. The Crab Who Played With The Sea (talk) 19:47, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
