ICv2 Exclusive: Unpublished ‘Asterix’ Comic Strips

On October 26, 2023, Papercutz will release the 40th volume of Asterix, titled Asterix and the White Iris, and today ICv2 has an exclusive first look at three comic strips that are being released as a companion to the graphic novel.  The first three strips in the sequence have been published elsewhere, but the second three are debuting here, and together the six strips form a standalone story, “The Chief’s Fight,” about the chief of Asterix’s tribe, Vitalstatistix, and his wife Impedimentia.

Asterix may be the most popular comic in the world; the global print run for the new graphic novel will be 5 million, and almost 400 million albums have been sold worldwide.  Papercutz, which acquired the license in 2019, has been releasing both collected three-in-one editions of the older comics and single volumes of the new ones (see “Mad Cave Imprint Papercutz to Release New ‘Asterix’”).
