Asterix guards a cauldron full of loot, visits Spain, and is accused of spying for the Romans!

In “Asterix and the Cauldron,” when a local Gaulish chief wants a cauldron full of money kept out of Roman hands, he entrusts Asterix to guard the loot. When the cash disappears, Asterix and Obelix must find a way to make money… fast! “Asterix in Spain” features our Gaulish hero heading to the Iberian peninsula to rescue the Gran Chen Huevos y Bacon’s son. But with the return of the Chief’s son to Hispania, comes a culture shock for Asterix and friends. Could Cacofonix the Bard finally find a culture that enjoys his awful singing? “Asterix and the Roman Agent,” starts when rumors are spread that Asterix leaked the recipe for the power potion to Rome Asterix must find who started these terrible rumors. These three classic graphic novels are newly translated for an American audience. Includes a new afterword by Alexander Simmons providing historical and cultural context for Asterix, both in 50 B.C. and in the time the classic comics were made addressing various racial depictions
