"A poor lonesome cowboy and a long way from home".
Lucky Luke is the title character of a far west parody created by Morris in 1949 as an indirect result of an extensive influence of American pop culture in Europe after World War II. Several american comics about cowboys appeared in Europe at this time, all with realistic drawings and serious storylines. Morris made an humourous twist on the tradition for Spirou magazine, and after Goscinny joined as a script writer the Lucky Luke series quickly became a success.
Lucky Luke is published by Dupuis. More than 200 million albums are sold by today, and Morris is still active producing new albums.
