Who am I? This is the main question of the hero in Pouť do země Šafránu (A Journey to the Land of Saffron) by Vladimír Tučapský. Similar issue of searching for identity was dealt with by a generation of young comics artists in the 1970s and 1980s. While they were trying to express their feeling, ideas, and perspectives that were forbidden by the official art scene, they created their own independent world which was one of the few ways how to escape from the everyday greyness of normalisation reality.
