Cultural references[edit]

  • The character of Pete is a caricature of René Goscinny.
  • The man who comes to Luke's rescue, claiming nobody should "beat an old man" is a caricature of Jean Gabin.
  • When the villagers are threatened to vote for Joss Jamon as their mayor two people who are forced to vote at gun point are Red Ryder and Little Beaver from Stephen Slesinger and Fred Harman's comic strip Red Ryder.[1]
  • This story marks the first appearance of several Wild West legends who would return in later Lucky Luke stories: Billy the Kid, Calamity Jane and Jesse James, yet they are all drawn quite differently compared with later Lucky Luke stories. Also, Calamity Jane is incorrectly portrayed as a villain.
