where can I find Asterix in English?

Beitrag: #Beitrag 1010 »

:) I am looking to buy all the Asterix volumes in English. Local bookstores can't order them for me. Does anyone know of a site where I could find some or all volumes?

Hans prepared an answer to your frequently asked question by visitors to our site Many Languages of Asterix:

There are 31 albums and only the last 7 albums are available. These titles are published by the English publisher Orion. For the first 24 albums the story is a bit complex. The publishing right for the English text are in the hands of Hodder-Dargaud. They lost the publishing rights in 1998 but still hold the rights for the English translation. Orion and another publisher called Egmont would love to publish the first 24 albums but due to Hodders English translation rights they are not able to do so. There is still no solution in sight and therefore only album 25 to 31 are printed by Orion.

The Orion books can be found at web-bookstores.
