Lucky Luke

Lucky Luke - Game BoyLucky Luke is a western comics series created by Belgian cartoonist Morris in 1946. Morris wrote and drew the series single-handedly until 1955, after which he used other writers, beginning with Astérix creator René Goscinny. French artist Achdé has drawn the series since Morris's death in 2001.

The series takes place in the American Old West and stars the titular Lucky Luke, a gunslinger known as the "man who shoots faster than his shadow", and his intelligent horse Jolly Jumper. Lucky Luke is pitted against various villains, either fictional or inspired by American history or folklore. The most famous of these are the Dalton Brothers. The stories are filled with humorous elements parodying the Western genre.

Lucky Luke is one of the best-known and best-selling comics series in Europe and has been translated into numerous languages so it should be no shock to anyone that over the years, several Lucky Luke video games have been released for many platforms. Most of these were released by Infogrames and only released in Europe. There were others released for the North American market however, for the Game Boy Color and PlayStation.
