Interesting plot Jan 2, 2008
Yet another classic Lucky Luke - the plot is really interesting and is set during the days of the gold rush which was followed by the Oil Rush in the US. Graphics are great as always!
Good value for money.
Fun comic book for both children and adults Sep 6, 2007
This is another installment in the hugely popular Lucky Luke series. These English-language editions by 9th Cinebook got my 12-year-old hooked into the Lucky Luke series. The books tend to present a historical situation or event (the discovery of oil, the range wars between ranchers and farmers, etc.) in a humorous, yet educational, light. A fun aspect of the Lucky Luke books is Luke's fictional interactions with real-life personalities from the Old West: Billy the Kid, The Dalton Gang, Jesse James, Calamity Jane and others.
