Plot[edit]

Four years after the great clash between Lucky Luke and Billy the Kid resulting in a 1200+ year prison sentence for Billy, Luke is asked to escort Billy to New Mexico to face trial for the crimes he committed there. However, Billy's enduring reputation and his repeated attempts at escape - mostly with the inept assistance of felon Bert Malloy - offer Luke and Jolly Jumper their fair share of excitement on the way.

Characters[edit]

  • Billy the Kid: One of the most fearsome bandits in the west, despite his childish attitudes.
  • Bert Malloy: Bandit met in prison by Billy, who will ally with him, for a share of Billy's (non-existent) 'stash'.
