This chapter explores the editorial evolution of Morris’ Lucky Luke comics series, from the publication of the first magazine strips in the 1940s to its canonization through successive reprints. Special attention is paid to the recent L’Art de Morris (2015), a book that aims to contribute to a history of bande dessinée and amass symbolic capital—as defined by sociologist Pierre Bourdieu—and to the associated exhibition that commemorated the 70th anniversary of the creation of Lucky Luke, unveiling a wealth of historical and archival documents that breathe new life into the comics while taking a nostalgic look at the past.
