Dogmatix was never intended to be a recurring character... or have his own series of Asterix books. He was only to appear in the 6th book Asterix and the Banquet, but proved so popular he became Obelix's faithful pet and eventually spawned these Dogmatix books. There were essentially two different series of Dogmatix books made - the "Adventures of Dogmatix" and the more official "Dogmatix Books" written and illustrated by Uderzo. The books are narrated from the perspective of Dogmatix, with big text and simplistic storylines. Although the names of Goscinny and Uderzo appear up on the cover it appears neither of them much involvement with the books. The illustrations are not drawn in an Uderzo style and appear very cartoonish. The books were all published by Hodder Causton and translated by Frances Verner (interesting because all other Asterix works were translated into English by Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge). The stories also make simple mistakes which contradict the official Asterix stories. For instance, in "Dogmatix and the Storm" it says that "Obelix's cousin from Brittany arrived on our doorstep" (no such person is known to exist) while the picture shows Anticlimax - Asterix's cousin from Britain. These stories will entertain younger readers but for Adult Asterix fans they are purely for collecting purposes. All the books are very rare and hard to find.
