Asterix 37 – And the Chariot Race
In Asterix and the Chariot Race, our two favorite Gauls travel to Italy at the invitation of Julius Caesar to partake in a race through the Italian peninsula. It is a race in which drivers from all over the known world compete. With this race Caesar wants to show the world the superiority of Roman infrastructure. But what most people don’t realize is that the race has been rigged in favour of the Roman chariot.
Asterix 37 is the third album made by the second generation of Asterix creators, Jean-Yves Ferri and Didier Conrad. They are also responsible for Asterix and the Picts and Asterix and the Missing Scroll.
