** The seventh one, apparently going for some sort of record, ends with [[spoiler:Khephren finding the statue and grabbing onto it as it falls into lava along with its worshipers, having abandoned his family in the pursuit of his dreams of power. Titus' mother is finally revealed (the Emperor's sister), but the family's joy is quenched on seeing Enak mourning his son.]]


Added DiffLines:

* MissingMom: Titus' mother died when he was still a child. [[spoiler:Of course she's alive. She's the Emperor's sister, but due to her position she and Alix could never be seen together, much less raise a child.]]

''Alix'' is a French-Belgian comic series created by Jacques Martin in 1948. It may be considered the serious, historically accurate counterpart to the more famous ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'', which it actually predates. It is a classic example of the ''ligne claire'' school popularized by Hergé.

* HotterAndSexier: The modern albums grow ever more risqué, with one girl throwing herself at Alix on a ship during a thunderstorm on the grounds that it'll make sex better, while one panel in "Saturn's Gold" features explicit wall engravings, all objectionable parts blocked by clothing or characters coincidentally raising their hands.



* AllFoNothing: Khephren uses the line at the end of the fifth book. And with good reason.



** Cybele's priests use lions to get rid of dead bodies.



* DarkerAndEdgier: The sequel is a lot darker, with a contemporary art style that doesn't hesitate to show bloody deaths, not to mention Enak having died sometime before and Alix having lost his youthful idealism.
** He no longer hesitates to have a prisoner tortured for information, and gives an enemy a MercyKill after threatening him with a slow death.

* HomoeroticSubtext: The relationship between Alix and Enak isn't exempt of sexual undertones, meaning they don't qualify as HeterosexualLifePartners. WordOfGod has it that the implied homosexuality is perfectly deliberate.
