Goscinny, yet again, tells a nice humorous story about the "poor lonesome cowboy" who is really a long way from home in this adventure as he is held prisoner by the deadly Dalton brothers. But our hero has his own schemes to outsmart the Daltons and get rid of a bunch of other no-good-doers at the same time. Joly Jumper is very funny as always. A nice wonderful story.
lucky luke has got to be one of the best comics in the world. asterix and tintin are good but ive read them tons of times since I was a kid. Lucky Luke is just fantastic. Every one of the comics is really nice, quite funny, somewhat historical. The horse is too cute, the way he talks and his antics.
Its a pity there are less than 10 of these in print in english. The publisher is slowly releasing 3-4 each year now and I hope to collect all of them.
If you liked Asterix, dont hesitate, buy all of the Lucky Luke's they are just fabulous. Dont have to bother about which title, they are all good.
My youngest son, age ten, has been reading these for some time now. Lucky Luke is usually depicted as a deputy in the old west times. He travels around taking care of problems and helping people.
One of the things I like about these books is that they are fairly good books to read. They are funny, which captures my son's imagination and keeps him reading. Since he's not interested in reading, I'm thrilled when he finds a book he will read for more than a few minutes. And while these are comic books, they do have a plot and character development.
One of the other things I like about this book (and the others) is that you can look at the pictures and see odd little scenes that make you giggle or that tell a short little story in the background (two or three or four scenes max). This enchanted me when I was reading to my son and we spent some time looking for these scenes and giggling.
Overall, Lucky Luke books are great. Dalton City is no different.
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.Yakari and Great Eagle (Yakari S.)Yakari and the Beavers (Yakari)
I bought this comic for a friend who enjoyed these stories when he was a kid. He made me read them and I fell in love with them too! Great purchase, will have to buy a set for myself too. Wonderful stories, very enjoyable and fun for all.
