really liked it
Read in August, 2011

A scattered, frantic tale of deception and plotting, bookended by the sweeping cultural changes that made Rasputin-era Russia so intriguing. The art is fantastic, the dialogue appropriately murky and double edged, all delivered with a knowing smirk, growled disdain or panicked hopelessness that marked the times. This isn't so much an entertaining read as one that invites further academic reads ignited by the slice of time represented within this graphic novel.
