Asterix punches a Roman soldier
£ 40.00–£ 195.00
Asterix punches a Roman soldier – it’s what he does best, and likes best.
The blow sends the Roman invader clean out of the panel, leaving just the leather straps of his sandals. The Gaul sends him on his way with the cheerful valediction: ‘See you later’. I love it. Characters in comics always have such a lot of time to chat even if they’re indulging in the most violent action.
The panels are taken from the Asterix books. I am currently the only screenprinter in Europe to have permission from French publisher Editions Albert Rene to use the firm’s archive of images for my work.
Asterix first appeared in 1959 and 35 books drawn by Albert Uderzo and written by Rene Goscinny were published until 2010, although new titles are now being issued with new writers and draftsmen.
