Today the French Post Office announced a new sheet celebrating the 50th anniversary of BD hero Astérix Le Gaule. It features seven stamps with the main characters from the series created by Albert Uderzo and René Goscinny. Each of the stamps mentions France as their country of origin, but also Gaule, the country's name in the series.
The main stamp, showing Astérix himself on top of a golden "50" is also available as a solo stamp.
Additionally, an illustrated booklet was published showcasing the comic, and containing a cancelled stamp.
