If the Old West is so well known, it's in no small part because some of its own legends made sure they were recognised in their own time - like Buffalo Bill Cody and his Wild West shows. When Colonel Cody asks Lucky Luke to join his show, though, the lonesome cowboy humbly refuses, before jokingly suggesting recruiting the Daltons instead - after all, their stupidity is quite legendary! A simple jest that will lead to many high jinks...
Born and raised in Belgium, Morris moved to the United States in 1946 for six years. There, he worked for MAD magazine and met Rene Goscinny. After Goscinny's death, several other writers contributed to Lucky Luke, including Patrick Nordmann, a well-known Swiss comedian, songwriter and radio journalist.
