An early happy birthday

The big day is Thursday when Asterix the Gaul turns 50. The French cartoon character was born on 29 October 1959 in the pages of the first issue of the weekly magazinePilote. To mark the occasion there is a special new Asterix and Obelisk edition on sale throughout the world. In Paris the event is being celebrated with concerts, exhibitions, artwork and even an acrobatic display by elite fighter pilots from the French air force.
