Escorting a French artist across the Old West, sure - but all the way to Paris? A new experience for Lucky Luke!

While dragging the Daltons back to a new prison after their umpteenth escape, Luke comes across a French sculptor, Bartholdi, who’s touring the West with a strange sculpture: a colossal hand holding a torch. In fact, it’s part of the now famous Statue of Liberty, and Bartholdi is raising funds towards its construction and transport from France. It’s not long before our cowboy is recruited by his government to escort Lady Liberty … from Paris!


Key Points:
  • Lucky Luke is one of the most famous cartoon characters, alongside Asterix and Tintin
  • Bestselling European comic series ever, with more than 300 million copies sold worldwide in over 30 languages

  • Suitable for adults and children
  • Published in English for the first time

'Achdé’s cartooning is excellent. Vastly influenced by Luke’s creator Morris, it wasn’t a great stylistic jump to mimic Morris’ style, and when you see a classic Daltons procession, their heads at the same height as they descend some steps, you know the franchise is in safe hands artistically'. [Frank Plowright, The Slings and Arrows Graphic Novel Guide

Born and raised in Belgium, Morris moved to the United States in 1946 for six years. There, he worked for MAD magazine and met René Goscinny, with whom he collaborated from 1955 until Goscinny’s death in 1977. Jean Léturgie co-created the character of Percevan before he began an enduring cooperation with Xavier Fauche. Fauche, a well-known figure in French radio, wrote for the French version of Jim Henson’s show Fraggle Rock and co-created the cartoon Les Tifous. His enduring cooperation with Jean Léturgie produced eight Lucky Luke titles. Eric Adam has been a writer for over 20 years, during which he’s worked on numerous titles of Marsupilami, Rantanplan and Lucky Luke.
