Asterix co-creator Albert Uderzo has reached an amicable settlement with his daughter to end a bitter legal battle over the cartoon empire. Uderzo, the creator of the beloved comic book character, filed suit against his daughter Sylvie and her husband, Bernard Boyer de Choisy, last year (13) amid allegations of "psychological violence".
He claimed the pair, which had previously been dismissed by Asterix publisher Editions Albert Rene as managers of the Uderzo estate, had been harassing him ever since Sylvie attempted to block his sale of his 60 per cent stake in all things Asterix in 2011, claiming her dad was being exploited.
Judges ruled that the Asterix creator, 87, is mentally stable, and her suit was thrown out of a French court on Friday (26Sep14).
Now the warring relatives have decided to put aside their differences and put an end to the dispute.
A joint statement released to the AFP news agency reads: "The Uderzo couple and their daughter are again reconciled and are determined to make a clean slate reciprocally, with regard to the reproaches made by both sides.
"They wish henceforth to enjoy in full their newly rediscovered happiness."
The most recent Asterix saga, titled Asterix and the Picts, was published in October, 2013. It was written by new author Jean-Yves Ferri and illustrated by Didier Conrad.
