In this fabulous collector's edition of Asterix, books four to six are collected in one volume for the first time ever. In Asterix The Gladiator, the Romans capture Cacofonix as a gift for Caesar who plans to throw him to the lions. To rescue their bard, Asterix and Obelix have to become gladiators. In Asterix and the Banquet, the Romans build a barricade around the village. So Asterix and Obelix demonstrate their resistance by going on a journey around the entire country, collecting local specialities on the way. Asterix, Obelix and co visit Egypt in Asterix and Cleopatra, where they are entranced by the Sphinx, the pyramids and Cleopatra's nose.
