Author(s): Laurent Gerra
While taking part in a rodeo in Wisconsin, Lucky Luke and Jolly Jumper meet Mario Bombardier, a Quebecois cowboy, and his mare the beautiful Province. It's love at first sight for the two horses, and after the inevitable separation, Jolly Jumper can't stop moping. Eventually Luke decides to head to Quebec in order to arrange a reunion - and discovers the merry atmosphere of the Nouvelle France: mounted police, bar fights, poutine, traditional French songs ...and an unscrupulous, wealthy banker...
Famous in France for his talent as an impressionist and his humourous one-man shows, Laurent Gerra is also a writer - of his own shows, of course, but also of various political comics and three episodes of "Lucky Luke". Achde began drawing comics at age three and has never stopped. Creator of such series as "CRS=detresse" and "Woker" (with Widenlocher), he eventually fulfilled a childhood dream when he was asked to take over as artist for "Lucky Luke."
