What's happening to Roland? Thanks god he surely isn't on board with this crazy crew!

Some background: Altan (Francesco Tullio Altan, 1942) is an Italian author of both satiric and child oriented comics. In the former case, he's famous for delivering a sense of ugly and ridicule. He takes otherwise respectable stories, often well known (at least there) and shows a different point of view of the characters, distorting reality in panels full of ugly details and strong contrasts.

Caution: violence is involved!

If English doesn't sound right, it is because it isn't meant to be. The statements are not grammatically correct even in the native language, I've tried to capture that feeling, I hope I have managed to screw as less as possible. I've also added some color to emphasize the action!

Is this the correct subforum?

That depends! If you want to talk mostly about Roland, it could/should go into the World forum in the upper section. But if you want to talk about Altan as well, it's fine just here. (Let me know if you want me to move it. :))

Nah, it's just fine. I was thinking about what could be happening to him and I was cleaning a bit my room. I found this old comic in a closet and couldn't resist pointing out the very weak conceptual link. I guess this is one of those fine coincidences.
Added bonus: it's a couple of weekends I want to take some time and just sunbath. In an ideal world, I would be at the beach. Unfortunately this has not been possible up to now. I fear it won't be possible even this time as it's already Friday.

Coming here again, I am unsure I have managed to translate the noir, fatalistic, paradoxal sense of humor of those drawings...
