OCTOBRIANA: THE UNDERGROUND HISTORY - What's in it?!
So what exactly is going to be in Kult Creation's new book about cult comix character - Octobriana? Firstly there is an in-depth analysis of the original 1971 book that launched the character in the West. Then there's the full story behind the creation of Petr Sadecky's book. Then a huge amount of detail about her every comic strip appearance since 1971 from 'The Adventures of Luther Arkwright' through to Trina Robbins' comic strip and webcomics. Analysis of the 2003 movie version and the audio adventures of the Russian Devil-Woman. OTUH will also cover the David Bowie and Billy Idol connections and other obscure and mysterious inspirations for and tributes to the Spirit of the October Revolution! Also, I brand new 34 page, full colour comic strip adventure featuring the character's origin (written by John A. Short and illustrated by Gabby Noble.) We might even have a few surprise guest illos by artists with an industry profile. The whole book will run to around 120 pages. Coming soon... ish!
