Peter Kessler


The Asterix expert is a BAFTA-winning TV producer and a lecturer on German silent cinema!

Peter Kessler has been reading comics since before he could read (he started out by just looking at the pictures). He is the author of ‘The Complete Guide to Asterix’, a book-by-book analysis of the Gaulish warrior’s adventures. When not reading comics, he has also been a BAFTA-winning TV producer, a furniture-maker, a lecturer on German silent cinema, and most recently he founded a primary school in North London. He is also the proud possessor of a letter written to him by Stan Lee when he was 11, which ended with the words, ‘Many thanks for your enthusiasm, Pete. It’s true believers like you who keep the flame of Marveldom alive. Excelsior!’
