The banquet

Asterix in Britain
Prepublication in the comic magazine Pilote between 1965 and 1966
Original publication 1966 – Plate 44

What is an Asterix adventure without its traditional banquet in the final panel? Under a starlit sky, around a roaring fire, the circle of guests depicts a strong community, just like the fence that surrounds the village. This is a utopian vision of a group united in celebrating an existence temporarily protected from the attacks of the outside world. This happy ending is associated with the reassurance of returning home and rediscovering the harmony of a simple existence.

A harmony that would be a little dissonant if Cacofonix were allowed to do his singing number.
