"La Retour de la Colonne Durutti" (October 1966, The Return of the Durutti Column) was a four page comic strip as fold-out pamphlet by André Bertrand, consisting of film stills and other visuals with added text balloons.

This 'détourned' comic strip was distributed by flyposting it at the University of Strasbourg.

The comic strip images and their translated speech balloons were featured in Ten Days that Shook the University.

The rock album The Return of the Durutti Column (1980) was named after it.

En volant des marchandises

"En volant des marchandises pour les donner, certains blousons noirs evitent cette ambiguite. Ils reproduisent a un niveau superieur la pratique du don qui a domine les societes archa'iques et que l'echange, en tant que formalisation des rapports sociaux sur la base d'un faible niveau de developpement des forces productives, est venu miner. Ils trouvent ainsi une conduite encore mieux adaptee a une societe qui se definit elle-meme comme societe de l'abondance, et amorcent pratiquement son depassement." --L'indépendance de la marchandise, from Internationale Situationniste[1]
