A lonely cowboy accompanied by his wolf dog travels the American West enforcing justice. Vigilante, defender of the weak, JACK DIAMOND fights against evildoers of all kinds. To do this, he relies on his pistol dexterity. His wolf dog helps him more often than not.
The JACK DIAMOND series is characterized by the beauty of the graphics, the realism, the precision of the drawing and the concern to document the American West.
