Script, Artwork and Cover: Carlo Ambrosini

Napoleone is dead! Only a handful of mourners at his funeral, only his dearest companions who were most strongly attached to him in life: Boulet, Dumas, Allegra and Mrs. Simenon.

How can it be that the one they are lamenting is right there, just a few steps away from them? Life herself intervenes to cause dramatic upsets in the protagonists’ existences, mingling memories, experiences, fragments from other stages of Napoleone’s life and from that of a hooligan killed during a hold-up…
