Asterix in '66

Asterix the Gaul, often the world's best-selling comics character in the years since '66 according to Guinness, was still virtually unknown in the US until this 1966 syndicated article about how popular the series was elsewhere. As of this writing, the latest ASTERIX album has just been released, most likely to be ignored yet again in the US, in spite of cartoons, mega-budget live action movies, and successful video and computer games. Some things never change. :(
