A series of comic books written by Rene Goscinny and illustrated by Albert Underzo, Asterix was popular in India and available at most train stations in English translation. It has been translated into Hindi
Based on the Roman conquest of Gaul (now France) and perhaps stemming from references in Julius Caesar's "The Gallic Wars" Asterix is a Gaul who benefits from strength giving magic potion to do pultis against Roman centurions, aided by his friend Obelix.
