"Asterix in Spain" is the fourteenth comic in the Asterix series, first published in 1969. There's a lot of adventure, great locations, and lots of wordplays that have been cleverly translated into English from the original French. Caesar has taken over Spain, yet a small town holds out against the invaders. To bring them to surrender, Caesar kidnaps the chiefs son, and sends him away to Gaul. Asterix, Obelix and Dogmatix find the boy while he's playing hide and seek with the Roman legionairies. They take him to their village, but he proves to be a bit of a nuisance, holding his breath when he doesn't get something he wants, stirring up fights and giggling at Obelix. They decide to take him home to Spain, across the mountains, and past many dangers. Will things be put right? It's a really clever little comic.
