Return home

Asterix and the Soothsayer
Prepublication in the comic magazine Pilote in 1972
Original publication 1972 – Plate 34

“Misfortune is upon you, Gauls! Your village is cursed by the gods! The very air you breathe will come from the depths of hell. It will be foul, poisoned, and your faces will turn a ghastly hue… FLEE! FLEE, RASH PEOPLE!” This is what Prolix the Soothsayer told the indomitable Gauls, counting on their superstition and gullibility to succeed in what the Roman army has failed to do for the last twenty albums: defeat the Gaulish village.

Fortunately, brought to their senses by Getafix and our two friends, they return home – having, of course, sunk the pirate ship on their way.
