Lucky Luke Vol 47: Outlaws

By Morris Publisher: Cinebook ISBN: 9781849182010 I have to confess that I’d not realised that the Daltons were based upon a real-life gang until I read this (although they weren’t all brothers) and that their depiction here, and the story’s outcome, resulted in the creation of a second gang of Daltons – their equally despicable […]
