Writers Jean-Yves Ferri and Didier Conrad unveiled the new title at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair. The duo first collaborated on Asterix and the Picts in 2013, following an eight year hiatus for the brand after creator Albert Uderzo had decided to “put away his pencils.”

In a statement the writers confirmed: “There will be battles aplenty and new characters, including one really nasty individual. There will be potions and Romans who get walloped. The plot will be complex and thrilling and there will be jokes about topical issues too. In short, it will be another Asterix just the way the fans like it.”

Le Papyrus de Cesar will be released on 22nd October.
