I received this question:

My husband was mentioning Latin comic books.  Do you know of any that you would recommend?  Our oldest is 13 (if that influences what you’d recommend).   Thanks!  We enjoy the Visual Latin series…I have learned so much, and I enjoy hearing even the younger children picking up a word or two that they can use.  Keep up the great work!

Here is my reply:

There’s not much, unfortunately.  And… the Latin is usually quite difficult.  That said, my favorites are from the Asterix series.  A few are available online for free.

Here is a TinTin comic book in Latin: http://www.latinitatis.com/latinitas/nubecula/insula/ins0.htm

Here is  one Asterix book that I know of: https://latin4everyone.files.wordpress.com/2013/12/asterix-gallus.pdf

Let me know if you need more help!

Have a happy Saturday!


If you are learning Latin, I have written a book with all of my best tips and strategies.  It’s available as a free download here: https://dwanethomas.com/downloads/via-latin-lost/

If you are interested in learning Latin, you can go through the classes on my site 24/7.  I recommend the book Lingua Latina by Hans Ørberg.  If you tackle the book and find yourself bogged down, you may find the classes on my site helpful.  To join, just click here: https://dwanethomas.com/join/

If you want a more professionally filmed experience, check out the best-selling DVD series: Visual Latin.

Or, if you want to skip Latin, and just jump right into learning English words from Latin and Greek roots, you may enjoy the series Word up!  Warning.   Word up! is a bit wacky.  You will learn a lot… but, you may find yourself rolling your eyes, too.
