Annotation

When a sinister visitor arrives in Asterix's village and claims to be a soothsayer, all the villagers believe him except Asterix.

Summary

One dark and stormy night, a sinister visitor arrives in the little Gaulish village. Prolix, who claims too be a soothsayer, prophesies that when the storm is over the weather will improve. And it does! Now the credulous villagers believe every word he says, but Asterix has his suspicions of the smooth-talking Prolix. Who is really right about the soothsayer?
