Masist Gül (1947-2003) was an artist of Armenian origin, who was born and lived in Istanbul. He made his living as an actor playing minor roles in over 300 movies and produced a large number of collages, drawings and poems, none of which were published or exhibited during his life. During the 80s he wrote and drew a series of six comic books with the title "Kaldırım Destanı – Kaldırımlar Kurdunun Hayatı" (Pavement Myth – The Life of the Pavement's Wolf). This is issue 1, published by BAS. Although it isn't strictly a pirate edition, BAS have struggled with the ethics around a posthumous edition for which the author never had a chance to give consent.
