Asterix in Europe 1977
Bassett Films, TV, Sci Fi & Comic Art Asterix in Europe 1977 Asterix in Europe 1977 50 - Asterix is a cartoon character originally illustrated by Albert Underzo who appeared in Franco-Belgian comics. The colourful cards feature the adventures of Asterix a clever warrior of ancient Gaul as he and his strong but dim best friend Obelix and the residents of their village try to resist Roman occupation in 50BC. They are aided in this goal by druid Getafix who brews a potent brew which gives temporary superhuman strength to anyone who drinks it. Asterix frequently travels abroad, even to Rome, but always returns to his home village after outwitting the Romans yet again. Part of the fun was the witty names given to the characters, for instance the chief is Vitalstatistix,, the dog belonging to Obelix is dogmatix, a Roman Centurion is called Crismus Bonus and the up-to-no-good chief of a rival Gaulish village was known as Chief Whosemoralsarelastix. An album was also produced to hold these cards. All good fun with details on the back. Cards size 66 x 35mm.

Basically the cards have a letter in the top left-hand corner and you have to be able to spell out the words Twilight Zone. Although there are 10 different cards you had to collect two of some of them to make the word. They deliberately made the letter Z hard to get and hence this is a part set of 9 not 10. The competition ended in March 2000 and the lucky prize winners won a complete set of Twilight Zone Premiere Edition Autograph cards. Size 89 x 64
