Lucky Luke Daily Star by Jean Leturgie, Xavier Fauche, Morris


Lucky Luke Daily Star by Jean Leturgie, Xavier Fauche, Morris

Horace Greeley is heading west with his printing press and his rock-solid belief in the power of the press, printing issues of his Daily Star as he goes. But his insistence on publishing the truth isn't making him universally loved. When Lucky Luke meets the quirky journalist, he agrees to help him settle in Dead End Gulch - and protect him against those who would rather not see their dirty deeds in print.

About the Author

Born and raised in Belgium, Morris moved to the United States in 1946 for six years. There, he worked for MAD magazine and met Rene Goscinny, with whom he collaborated from 1955 until Goscinny's death in 1977. Jean Leturgie began as a journalist specialised in comics before he began writing scripts. He co-created the character of Percevan with Philippe Luguy, then began an enduring cooperation with Xavier Fauche that produced eight Lucky Luke titles, followed by the spin-off series Rantanplan (Rin Tin Can) and Kid Lucky. Fauche, a well-known figure in French radio, also wrote for the French version of Jim Henson's show Fraggle Rock and co-created the cartoon Les Tifous.
