By Rene GOSCINNY
Illustrated by Morris

Hardback, 290 x 220 mm. 144pp ~Suitable for: 8+ years.
Due for publication: October 2017

At last Lucky Luke is getting a hardback collected edition, with three titles from the end of the 50s.

After 70 years of life and almost 70 translated volumes, it was high time English-speaking readers were offered a hardback collected edition. For this first volume we chose to start with title that herald the golden age of the series. Doc Doxey’s Elixir (including Manhunt) and Phil Wire (including Lucky Luke and Pill) were first published in 1955 and 1956, and already Luke is much closer to the cowboy that we now have in mind. The third story, Rails on the Prairie, was the first collaboration between Morris and Goscinny – ushering in 30 years of a legendary collaboration.


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
  • Lucky Luke comics were made into several animated cartoons. In 1991 Terence Hill directed a cinema adaptation in which he played the lead role, and in 2009 James Huth directed a new version with French comic Jean Dujardin in the lead role
  • Suitable for adults and children
  • Published in English for the first time

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. Goscinny also created the Iznogoud series with illustrator Tabary, published in English by Cinebook, and the hugely successful Asterix series with illustrator Uderzo.
