It's not MUCH worse than Asterix or Obelix. :)

Oh, Keith Giffen...did you forget comics were supposed to be bleak and unrelentingly grim? Of course, this WAS 1986, but still. :)

Well, he had to do something to get the "Grim & Gritty Legion" out of his teeth, yes?

Nice intricate referencing - as I recall, the Soothsayer in Asterix who that evil character is based on was named 'Prolix'.

L'Officier loves this kind of stuff. He's one of the most active contributors to the French "Wold Newton" community.

Well, nice to see American comics give homage to Franco-Belgian comics.

...Now, it's a shame that the author of Asterix not only did not return the homage, but his more recent story actually gives a "Take That" to American comics, Superman in particular.

I love this so much. Vive Astérix!

Ah yes, the issue that the creator of Asterix threatened DC with a massive lawsuit over if it was ever reprinted in any way, shape or form...
