This is the graphic novel that has inspired the film. A bestseller it could be taken for an absurd comedy except it is based on actual events. When the leader of the Soviet Union, Joseph Stalin, has a stroke, the political gears begin to turn, plunging the super-state into darkness, uncertainty and near civil war. Fear, corruption and treachery abound in this political satire set in the aftermath of Stalin’s death in the Soviet Union in 1953. The struggle for supreme power will determine the fate of the nation and of the world.
