Cartoon Aid - the big book (part 1)

I've looked before at publications associated with the Cartoon Aid charity (like Band Aid but with more cartoons and less Bob Geldof) - if you missed them they are as follows...
a). the Olympic book is here
b). Bryan Hitch's work in the Kidz book is here
c). Mike Collin's work in the Kidz book is here
d). Terry & Sheila Bave's work in the Kidz book is here
e). Simon Donald's work in the Kidz book is here
f). Cartoon Aid auction at Sotheby's & a festival in Margate is here
g). Waddington's jigsaw (from the Margate festival is here)
h). Scare Bears monster party book is here 
i). a REALLY big tome called Cartoon Aid here 

and there are some interesting parts of the really big book that I just want to highlight on the blog in a series of upcoming posts...

First up is the first (as far as I can make up) reprint of this 2 pages Asterix strip which first appeared in issue #1337 (02/08/71) of Elle magazine. You'll see that the character names below are NOT the usual names that British readers would be familiar with...

The 2003 book that would be the next reprint of the story Midi, Midi, Maxi - now complete with 'correct' character names!
