Sometimes the little things become very important. I am writing a lecture on narratology, attempting to make it fun - I am boring myself to death writing it, I can't imagine what it will be like listening - and I use Asterix as an example of the different concepts of narratology, refering to Greimas and Bordwell. Comics are such very good examples because they are both written and verbal and act like books, while at the same time the drawings often use typical techniques from films.
And do you know what Asterix and his friend Obelix do over and over and over again in all the albums? They eat. I get too hungry reading them, so I have to go get lunch and gain strength.
