When Lucky Luke arrives, everyone - from the sheriff to the undertaker - is drilling. As soon as a well is opened, the fight begins. In comes Barry Blunt, a rich prospector who buys up, one by one, all the oil shafts from their owners. But his more-than-suspicious methods draws the wrath of Lucky Luke...


Author Notes

The character of Lucky Luke became a myth thanks to Morris (his creator) and Goscinny. These two giants of the 9th art collaborated with passion for more than 20 years until the death of the famous scriptwriter. Goscinny is the author of the well-known Astérix, which he launched with Uderzo. He also co-authored Iznogoud with Tabary. In 1992, Morris received the 'Grand Prix Spécial 20ème Anniversaire' from the international comics show at Angoulême, and in 1998, the French Minister of Culture decorated him with the rank of 'Officier des Arts et des Lettres'.
