The Stampede is in town again, and it clued me into checking out this Lucky Luke comic book that was at my parents place. Aside from Skywalker or Paul Newman's Cool Hand, Lucky Luke was another one of the nicknames I got as a kid. He was a cowboy known 'to shoot faster than his shadow'. This comic, Western Circus, was published in 1970.
Short of the name there isn't much similarity to me, but I was always a fan of the illustrations in this comic as a kid. I still am, they're really well done. The most interesting part about this Western comic is that it's not even North American. Lucky Luke is a popular Franco-Belgian comic series that has been translated into English.
