When Lucky Luke arrives, everyone - from the sheriff to the undertaker - is drilling. As soon as a well is opened, the fight begins.

About the Author

The character of Lucky Luke became a myth thanks to Morris (his creator) and Goscinny. These two giants of the 9th art collaborated with passion for more than 20 years until the death of the famous scriptwriter. Goscinny is the author of the well-known Asterix, which he launched with Uderzo. He also co-authored Iznogoud with Tabary. In 1992, Morris received the 'Grand Prix Special 20eme Anniversaire' from the international comics show at Angouleme, and in 1998, the French Minister of Culture decorated him with the rank of 'Officier des Arts et des Lettres'.
