Moebius Tribute: Rola-Doida by Rafael Albuquerque


I admit that I was never a fanatic reader or collector of Moebius work, and, as much I always loved everything that landed to my hands, i have just a few books (i know, my bad).

What is impressive though, is that i've read "The Major Fatal" adventures about 15 years ago, and those stories are still fresh in my mind. I was thinking about doing a portrait of him for this tribute, but the very first thing that poped up in my mind were those crazy, non-sense and amazing characters of the Hermetic Garage.

This one, the "Rola-Doida" (no idea how its called in english) was the funniest.


Thanks for your peculiar sense of humor, Moebius.
