Read from February 09 to 12, 2011

This volume collects the two Blueberry albums Ballade pour un cercueil (Eng. title: Ballad for a Coffin) and Le hors-la-loi (Eng. title: The Outlaw), that is, albums 15 and 16 in the original French publication. The first one of these continues the events from the previous volume and wraps up the three-parter Le Tresor des Confederes (The Confederate Treasure), while the second one opens the two-parter Premier complot contre Grant (The First Plot against Grant).

The latter may very well be one of the finest achievement in the entire series and the short-cropped Blueberry at the opening of the arc is great visual characterisation of both where the character and the story are going.

As always, highly recommended stuff.
