a close up of a person wearing a hat: A lot has changed since Hocus Pocus (aka The Ultimate Halloween movie) was released in 1993, especially the actors.

Her introduction is thanks to writer Jean-Yves Ferri and illustrator Didier Conrad, who have created the last three editions, sticking close to the original format.

"We didn't want to develop a character who would be based on her seductive side as we usually do with female characters in Asterix," Mr Conrad said.

"Most of the time they are young attractive women who seduce Obelix and their role stops there."

The latest edition of the comic series sees Asterix and Obelix trying to protect Adrenaline, who is being hunted down by the series' villanoious Romans.

The pair will also have to deal with the intergenerational gap between themselves and the teenager.

"In terms of the vocabulary it was quite amusing because I had to create a sort of teenage language for the time," scriptwriter Mr Ferri said.

Over 370m copies of the Asterix series have been sold worldwide, with the series having been translated into more than 100 languages.

Asterix has also inspired dozens of movies, cartoon series and even a theme park - Parc Asterix - in France.

Scientists Are Making a 3-D Map of the Universe Going Back 11 Billion Years .
Nearly 500 scientists from 13 countries have come together in an ambitious new effort to map… well, pretty much everything. As part of a $70 million program funded mostly by the U.S. Department of Energy, the scientists have converted an old telescope in Arizona into a high-tech new sensor that can detect light from stars as far as 11 billion light years away. The objects, as they appear on Earth, are as old as 11 billion years and offer a tantalizing glimpse into the early eons of our roughly 14-billion-year-old universe.
