Oumpah-Pah - The Complete Collection: discover the new album
Yak! Yak! Yak! Oumpah-Pah is back!
Released on 12 October in French bookshops, the complete collection of the adventures of Oumpah-Pah the Indian, created by our dynamic duo Goscinny and Uderzo, will delight every reader. Oumpah-Pah - L'Intégrale (Oumpah-Pah - The Complete Collection) collects all Oumpah-Pah stories : Oumpah-Pah le Peau Rouge, Oumpah-Pah sur le sentier de la guerre, Oumpah-Pah et les pirates, Oumpah-Pah et la mission secrète, Oumpah-Pah contre Foie-Malade.
16 completely new pages presenting for the first time in an album, rare and special documents taken from the personal collections of Albert Uderzo and Anne Goscinny. These include illustrations produced for the Journal de Tintin magazine, typescripts, handwritten notes and sketches from René Goscinny, Oumpah-Pah record sleeves, and more.
8 pages from the very first version of the comic strip created several years before the first publication.
And there is every reason to enjoy it, what with all the ingredients of Asterix's fun-filled magic potion already found in the Oumpah-Pah mix: comic repetition, word and language play, parodies of famous songs, invocations of exotically named gods, anachronistic cultural references, the comic rewriting of history…. Not to mention the exceptional expressive and dynamic illustration that uniquely encapsulates the realistic and comic talents.
