The dark history surrounding the G30S, not only its dark history, but still many dark sides that have not been raised to be a reference of public. Through direct observation and experience, as well as investigations of victims or relatives of victims of violence, GM Sudarta, this outstanding caricaturist attempted to reconstruct the bloody event in the form of a collection of short stories titled Bunga Tabur Terakhir.

Horror, even revenge was awakened after reading a collection of short stories Bunga Tabur Terakhir of GM Sudarta’s work that has been known to incise images loaded terms of social criticism. Trumping a traumatic event, is not the main reason for GM Sudarta in compiling this short story, but on the contrary, the reader is enlightened by a reconstruction of the truth against gray events that have occurred in this country that until now have not been removed or deliberately made taboo by certain parties.

Then through the short story entitled Yomodipati, god of death, GM Sudarta managed to reconstruct the action and the way penyidukan. The people were taken away not because he was always a member of the forbidden party, but sometimes more out of envy, wanting to get his possessions, marrying his wife, spreading his passions, or other reasons that had nothing to do with communist teachings. The executors hold a book that lists the names to be picked up, it is unknown who made and where they came from.

Sejarah kelabu seputar peristiwa G30S, tidak hanya sejarahnya saja yang kelabu, namun masih banyak sisi gelap yang belum diangkat untuk menjadi referensi masyarakat umum. Melalui pengamatan dan pengalaman secara langsung, serta investigasi terhadap para korban atau sanak-saudara korban kekerasan, GM Sudarta, sang karikaturis ulung ini berusaha merekontruksi peristiwa berdarah tersebut dalam bentuk kumpulan cerpen yang berjudul Bunga Tabur Terakhir.

Kengerian, bahkan dendam memang terbangun setelah membaca kumpulan cerpen Bunga Tabur Terakhir karya GM Sudarta yang selama ini dikenal menorehkan gambar bermuatan syarat kritik sosial ini. Mengaduk-aduk peristiwa traumatis, bukanlah alasan utama GM Sudarta dalam menyusun cerpen ini, namun justru sebaliknya, pembaca diberi pencerahan akan sebuah rekonstruksi kebenaran terhadap peristiwa kelabu yang pernah terjadi di negeri ini yang sampai sekarang belum tersibak atau sengaja dibuat tabu oleh pihak tertentu.

Kemudian lewat cerpen berjudul Yomodipati, dewa penyabut nyawa, GM Sudarta berhasil merekontruksi aksi dan cara penyidukan. Warga diciduk bukan karena dia itu selalu anggota partai terlarang, namun terkadang lebih karena perasaan iri, ingin mendapatkan harta-bendanya, mengawini istrinya, menebarkan hawa nafsunya, atau sebab lain yang tak ada sangkut pautnya dengan ajaran komunis. Para eksekutor itu menggenggam buku yang berisi daftar nama-nama yang harus diciduk, tak diketahui siapa yang membuat dan dari mana daftar itu berasal.
