It runs in De Standaard for three months, but after only three episodes the comic strip is modified for copyright issues, as Het Volk sues De Standaard for making an unauthorized copy of their former hit comic strip. After a few weeks the legal battle is solved and the story is allowed to continue as planned. It runs until 30 June, after which Sleen finally makes the first Nero story for De Standaard. [4]
