Mayday, mayday. Writer over board.
This was so difficult. It makes no sense out of context and I’m afraid it doesn’t make sense in context either. But I just read Corto Maltese in Siberia again, and I discovered many details that I had never really understood before and that were never explained, and I’ve still enjoyed the story for many years (I’ve even seen the animation!). So there is hope.
I still wish I could have done this page differently, but I don’t know how. Oh well.
