SUPERMAN VERSUS OBELIX...
Well, sort of! It happened in ACTION COMICS #579, back in
1986. That figure with the sword on the cover is meant to represent
ASTERIX The GAUL, although he doesn't appear inside (there is a
reference to him, but not by name). OBELIX, however, does appear
(under the name of COLUMNIX) and goes toe-to-toe with SUPERIX
(guess who?). I won't spoil your enjoyment by telling you too much
about this tale in case you want to hunt it down on eBay, but it's
certainly one that deserves to be in your collection.
Remember when comics were fun? This one sure fits the bill!
Written by R.J.M. LOFFICIER, pencilled by KEITH GIFFEN,
