Here's LUKE!...LUCKY LUKE!!


Hi friends, there's a something for all of you beside Indrajals.
Actually, we read comics in India mostly published in WEST & among them most Indrajal heroes,Bat-man,Super-man,Tin tin,Archie etc. are very familiar with most of the comic lovers.

But, there are some Comic-heroes as well,those very popular in their home-land but not so in the other countries/continents.
Among them, my most favorite is LUCKY LUKE..... the famous hero of wild west....."Who is quicker than his own shadow" (can you beat it!)
I first read a Luke comic in 1994 [Calamity Jane] and from then i'm an ardent fan of him & my fondness towards Luke forced me to share some info.s with other comic fans around the world.
I am also planning to start a 'comic-blog' entirely dedicate to LUKE....so that i'm looking for collect some/all (if possible) scans of Luke comics...

There's some 70-75 Luke comics in French (1946 - 2006)... among them around 25 were published in English from 1962.

Here's some info. from wikipedia:

Lucky Luke is a
Franco-Belgian comics series created by Morris, and over period written by René Goscinny. Set in the American Old West, it stars the titular character, Lucky Luke, the cowboy known to shoot faster than his shadow.
Along with
The Adventures of Tintin and Asterix, Lucky Luke is one of the most popular and best-selling comic-book series in continental Europe but unlike Tintin and Astérix, despite its popularity in Canada, only a handful of the series' adventures have been translated into English.

Morris drew Lucky Luke from 1946 until his death in 2001. The first Lucky Luke adventure named 'Arizona 1880' published on 7th December,1946.
I wish, one day there will be some Luke comics on NET among so-many-other-characters...so that many comic-lovers will get the real test of wild west .
