Goscinny — Drawings by: Le Devin Published by: Hachette Livre First published by: Asterix and Obelix take on Caesar.
One dark and stormy night, a sinister figure arrives in the little Gaulish villafe. Prolix, who claims to be a soothsayer, prophesies that when the storm is over the weather will improve.
Now the credulous villagers believe every word he says, but Asterix has his suspicions of the smooth-talking Prolix. Who is really right about the soothsayer?
