Recap: Asterix and Obelix's Birthday: The Golden Book
It's Asterix's and Obelix's birthday. Friends they've made from all over come to the village to discuss what would make a good gift for the heroes.
- Back for the Finale: Even a few bit characters show up.
- Comic-Book Time: Lampshaded by Uderzo.
- Continuity Porn: Big time.
- Creator Cameo: Albert Uderzo himself shows up.
- Rage Against the Author: When Uderzo shows up to take credit for the Time Skip, Obelix lays him out, and Uderzo agrees to return the village to normal.
- Shout-Out: To the point of ad naseum.
- Time Skip: Uderzo starts the album by showing what would our heroes be like if they really aged for 50 years. The results are...not pretty.
