Albert Uderzo To Write Asterix Again

Asterix and the Picts2013 saw the release of Asterix And The Picts, a 35th volume in the long running Asterix series , and became the best selling comic book of the year.

Uniquely, it was the first not to be created by Rene Goscinny or Albert Uderzo. Uderzo took over all creative duties after the death of Goscinny, but this year relented, allowing creators Jean-Yves Ferri and Didier Conrad to take over the reins, with his blessing. And he draw Obelix on the cover.

But it seems, like Obelix with a boar drumstick, he just can’t let go.

He has been involved with a family legal battle over the future of Asterix. His decision to sell a majority share of the character to his publisher Hachette, as well as to allow new books without his direct involvement, caused ructions within his family, with his daughter Sylvie Uderzo, who was fired as a result of the move, claiming to fight back on behalf of the legacy of the character. She filed suit, saying that her father was being influenced and abused by others to make these decisions, but French courts recently declared that he was mentally fit.

But in one article, they make mention of a new future for the character and for Albert Uderzo.

Ten days before Christmas, as he was about to go and be alone with Ada, he also confided his latest idea: write the script for a new Asterix story even though the series has been entrusted to a duo of contemporary creators..

He’s baaaaaaack…
