Michael Steven Donovan
about
As the title character of his own Franco-Belgian comic series by Jean-Michel Charlier and Mœbius (Jean Giraud), Mike Blueberry is less a hero than a survivor. Far from solving every problem laid before him, Blueberry is often barely able to keep his head out of a noose. Yet for all his rebellious pride, he is no morally gray anti-hero. His senses of honor and loyalty earn him more trouble than respect.

The long-running series follows him from his youth as a plantation owner's son through his career as a Union soldier, sheriff, outlaw, gambler, native sympathizer, and marshal.

The series developed in the 1960's alongside Leone's Spaghetti Westerns. Both owe more to the realism of Wister than the machismo melodramas of John Wayne.

New Blueberry stories have been published every few years since it's inception, with Giraud taking up writing duties after Charlier's death, though due to the dominance of superhero titles in the U.S., only a few Blueberry stories are available in English.
