That was not the first time Olarra has popped up on the actor’s social media account.

The plot of this new album will take place in Louisiana. Lucky Luke, who inherits a cotton plantation, will find himself confronted with racial segregation and the Ku Klux Klan . To help him return these lands to black farmers, he can count on the help of the Dalton and the Bayou Cajuns. But it will be mainly the character of Bass Reeves, this African-American sheriff, himself born a slave, who will help him to bring justice.
