About the Author

Didier Conrad was born in 1959 in France. He worked for the French comics magazine Spirou for a number of years before being handpicked by surviving Asterix creator, Albert Uderzo, to do the art on subsequent volumes of the franchise. Together with writer Jean-Yves Ferri, the duo’s first volume, the 35th in the series, came out in 2013.
"This is dead solid, old-school comics-making used to its best effect. Resolutely fixed panel borders and battle sequences punctuated by occasional close-ups draw eyes relentlessly along the page. The exaggerated cartooning is all big emotions and outsize action, accentuated by bright, popping colors. The steadfast characters have recognizable personalities delivered in quick, broad strokes ....Young readers who haven’t met Asterix will find him both entertainingly new and welcomingly familiar."
