In ASTERIX AND THE CAULDRON, Asterix is tasked with guarding a cauldron full of money but, when the cash disappears, Asterix and Obelix must earn enough to repay it all. Fairground gladiatorial contests, theatrical performances, bank robbery - our heroes will try anything! In ASTERIX IN SPAIN, the Gauls rescue Chief Huevos y Bacon's son and return him to Spain, where they tangle with the tourist industry, flamenco and wild aurochs in the bullring! In ASTERIX AND THE ROMAN AGENT, Julius Caesar turns to psychological warfare and sends in the sneaky Roman agent, Tortuous Convolvulus. Can he make the Gauls suspect each other of treachery? Or will our heroes outwit him?
