The planet's favourite comic strips, now on a Web site near you!

http://www.windesheim.nl/hselles/asterix.html

The year's 50 B.C., and you've been magically transported back to the days of Julius Caesar, magic potions, inept pirates and a bunch of indomitable Gauls. Yep, I'm talking about the small warrior who can do wonders...with a little help from his friends, of course.

This again is not the official site, because that was only in French. So, for the benefit of all those who speak in Anglais, this site should do for you. The site itself has all the items you might be looking for, and a few surprises as well. First up, go to the "Album Descriptions", which have a brief synopsis of all the different Asterix books in print along with a little artwork. Then, if you're curious or ignorant, you need to take a look at the list of "Main Characters". Then comes the interesting part.

There is a listing of the introductory text (which appears at the beginning of every book) in all the different versions. All those Latin quotes which so entranced and interested us, are finally translated here. And, just in case you want to see how widely-spread Asterix's adventures were, there's a map which lets you go to all the places in the series, and see what he did there. Finally, there are samples of scenes from Asterix where Goscinny and Uderzo painted themselves into the scene. Cool, huh?

The history section is very informative, and is not only for those who are interested in the series. With a site like this, the brave little Gaul will be fighting on for a long, long time.

The feline with a black hole for a stomach - that's Garfield for you. Along with the inane Odie and the weird Jon, this smart-aleck cat has become an icon all over the world.

The site has a simple design (a little too simple) but its cheery yellow links are quite nice. The first link I'd advise would be the comics segment - his has a whole horde of links to the different Garfield comics. It also has clips from the TV cartoon, "Fat Cat Facts", Odie's profile and features on the whole Garfield gang. For fans of the cat, there's a segment which tells you what's happening in the cat's life nowadays.

The "Fun'n'Games" segment is overloaded with games that you can play online and are linked to stuff Garfield does best, like eat lasagna. You can also buy the books featured and GTV helps you pick out when Garfield's on TV. Besides this, there's an online club and an e-gazette - all designed to fill your minds with enough stuff about the stomach-stuffing cat.
