I'd also say it's a bit like One Punch Man because the protagonists are basically invincible most of the time (or all the time in case of Obelix). So when they say have to infiltrate the Roman foreign legion, they treat it like a vacation because the Romans can't really do anything to stop them.
Asterix has never lacked in stronkness. The chauvinistic swines are just salty that most ladies in the comic aren't conventionally beautiful (because there are at most a handful of characters that were ever drawn in a realistic style)Complicity wrote: ↑Fri Apr 02, 2021 6:37 amAnother wall of verbal diarrhea written by an idiot who doesn't know what they are talking about.
Yeah, Asterix is so full of muh old stereotypes, never mind the fact that in the movie Asterix and the Big Fight the female characters are the only ones with fight scenes, and that there are no damsels in distress or subservient housewives in any story, and the women of the village not only are recurring characters, but their husbands (like the village chief) are lowkey completely cucked.
It also reminds me of that one story where the Romans kidnap some Hispanic kid that then proceeds to annoy the shit out of Romans and Gauls. Though that kid was a much more developed character.Afaik that story is just a copy of a previous one in which Asterix and Obelix are forced to babysit a male millennial faggot who wanted to become a rockstar bard.
This new new also did one where they meet the Picts, which had some suspiciously hyper-competent waifu.
A real shame. These new guys can deliver a somewhat authentic Asterix experience. That one with the chariot race across Italy was alright.
Though I will never forgive them for starting to draw the black guy of the pirates without red lips.
She's not a "new" character in the sense that she joins the recurring cast. She doesn't. The issue ends with her fucking off to a tropical island.
