 Blueberry
Mike S. Blueberry began the series as a Lieutenant in the US Cavalry, but the 25-plus books in the series have seen the character involved in a variety of situations from sheriff, outlaw on the run, to retired card-shark at the OK Corral.
At the invitation of Jean-Michel Charlier and Jean Giraud I was asked to draw the stories, and offer that presented me with an immense opportunity to work on one of my favorite series.
Since Charlier's death some of the elements that I though important to the overall interest of the series had been overlooked, so perhaps it was inevitable that one day I would want to try to write something myself.
