Uderzo's form has not always been so poor. Some of his earlier efforts proved to be elegant sequels to the joint series, neatly in tune with the changing politics, and fashions in humour, of the s and s. A turn to the postmodern has become increasingly evident. The even bigger question, though, is why these cartoon stories of ancient Gauls and their unfortunate Roman adversaries ever became so successful. Goscinny and Uderzo themselves always refused to show much interest in this.

Confronted by interviewers suffering, as they saw it, from "exegesis sickness", they would counter with a bluff, no-nonsense and, I hope, ironic lack of curiosity. Our only ambition is to have fun. Most critics, on the other hand, have thought that there was a good deal that needed explaining. Some, like the Italian interviewer, have dwelt on the appeal of the David-and-Goliath conflict between the Gauls and the Roman superpower.
In adventure after adventure, most of the Gauls' over-ingenious schemes misfire as badly as the best-laid Roman ones. Others have made a lot of the cartoon's attraction for adults, as intended by the original Pilote. Pagnol was apparently delighted: "Now I know my work will be immortal.

This adult appeal is obviously a crucial factor in the books' sales, given that most child readers are dependent on adult purchasing power. Vercingetorix is written up in Caesar's own self-serving account of the Gallic War as a traitor and Gallic nationalist, who was resoundingly outmanoeuvred by Roman tactics at the Battle of Alesia; he surrendered to Caesar and was packed off to Rome, to be killed several years later as part of the celebrations of Caesar's triumph in 46 bc.
In modern French culture, as Anthony King has emphasised in a recent supplement to the Journal of Roman Archaeology , Vercingetorix has become a national hero for both left and right. The occasion on which, with all the dignity a failed rebel could muster, he laid his arms at Caesar's feet, has become a mythic image, one of the key moments in the history of the nation.
Ambitious translation is part of the answer. The English translators of the whole series, Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge, have approached the job in the most energetic way. All the French jokes, and in particular the distinctive word plays, are given a new English spin, often with very little link to the original.
