Berlin – The griffin is a cruel creature. A mythical and predatory animal, a mythical hybrid creature with a lion-like body and the head of a bird of prey. Already in ancient Egypt, more than 6000 years ago, this symbol of death reliably spreads fear and terror. The griffin is wild and clever, without fear or mercy and always victorious – the heraldic animal of the pharaohs. A legendary enforcer, a hunter, avenger and guardian who was also at the command of the gods of war in Greco-Roman antiquity. But that’s not all: Now this monstrous deathbringer appears in the latest adventure of the indomitable Gauls Asterix and Obelix. At least in the title, the 39th volume is called “Asterix and the Griffin”.
