Phoenician merchant Ekonomikrisis has forgotten the druid Getafix's order for rock oil - an essential ingredient in the magic potion. So Asterix and Obelix go prospecting for black gold in the Middle East. Can they also outwit the Roman secret agent Dubbelosix and his amazing folding chariot, equipped with all the latest spy gadgets?

MEDIA REVIEWS
A cartoon drawn with such supreme artistry, and a text layered with such glorious wordplay, satire and historical and political allusion that no reader should ever feel like they've outgrown it.--TIME OUT
The Asterix books represent the very summit of our achievement as a literary race. In Asterix one finds all of human life. The fact that the books were written originally in French is no matter. I have read them all in many languages and, like all great literature, they are best in English. Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge, Asterix's translators since the very beginning, have made great books into eternal flames.--THE TIMES
