Reviews - What do customers think about Asterix: Le Ciel Lui Tombe Sur La Tete?

Ridiculous, xenophobic attempt to fight manga  May 10, 2006
I thought that it wasn't possible to go lower than "Ast?rix et Latraviata" and "La Rose et le Glaive", but again Uderzo outdoes himself. As a lover of the original series and even some books of the "new" series ("La Gal?re D'Obelix" and "Le Fils d'Ast?rix" come to mind), this new adventure of Ast?rix has distressed me.

Even for BD professionals the idea that the ocident must unite and fight the japanese manga writers seems idiot to me. But worst, it shows Uderzo as a bearer of the worst stereotypes the french are known about: their racism, their xenophoby and their ignorance. This is even stranger as Goscinny coped without problems with all european nations and even with the egyptians and native americans - treating all of them with the due respect. (D**n, at "Le Domain des Dieux" one of the most dignified characters was an african man!)

And finally, topping over one of the worst scripts I've ever read on the world of BD, there is the hommage to Walter Elias Disney. When taking a look on this book for the first time, before reading it, I found it most strange. However, after going through "Le Ciel..." it is very appropriate - perhaps even unavoidable. (No, this is not a praise.)

The only thing that remains from this is a enormous headache - after all, after reading this I feel as the sky had fallen over my head. I would give it zero stars if it was possible; as it is not, it gets the lowest rating possible.
What's going on here?  Oct 20, 2005
This is no longer the Asterix we have come to known over the past few decades. This is something... weired!

Instead of fighting Romans or travelling around the world, Asterix meets a bunch of aliens and... Superman clones. This is so terrible. Albert Uderzo has succesfully damaged his lifework by putting this volume of Asterix' adventures on the market.

Admitably, Uderzo is not the first European comic book artist to seek a new approach to well established characters. Even Hergé did so in one of his last Tintin books, "Vol 714 pour Sydney", or "Flight 714" as it is known in the US. Yes, there was an UFO in "Flight 714", but that story did work -- in contrast to this one.

As that golden bowl decends to Asterix' village, a threat even scarier than Cesar's legions looms over the gaul's world: unimaginative storytelling, boredom and idiocy...
