"I think about it often, it's 20 pages, half an album," Anne Goscinny told the German weekly

Der Spiegel


In an interview published this weekend, René Goscinny's daughter spoke of the discovery, in family archives, of an unfinished scenario of the adventures of Asterix written by her father before his death.

The script for this plot titled

Asterix at the Circus

, typed in, should have appeared after

Asked about a posthumous finish of this album, Anne Goscinny replied that it would be "very complicated".

"It's like a painting by Goya that has a hole"

“So many people should sit around the table, immerse themselves in the story and find [the] voice [of my father],” she said.

It's like a painting by Goya that has a hole.


However, she does not close the door to such a project: "One day, we will try, it would be an extraordinary adventure", she added.

Died in 1977, René Goscinny is, with Albert Uderzo, who died last year, the creator of the irreducible Gaulois in 1959. The adventures of Asterix have sold several hundred million copies worldwide.

He was instrumental in creating the profession of comic book writer, which did not exist before him.
