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.
  • Easily Forgiven: Squareonthehypotenus is the main antagonist in The Mansions of the Gods and gets quite a few bruises for it, but he and the Gauls have clearly buried the hatchet since then, as he's one of the guests here, and plans a theme park in their honour.
  • 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.
