Cult, underground, public domain, communist super-heroine! Busting out from behind the Iron Curtain in 1971, she’s been storming Western comix for over forty-five years! Featuring in everything from ‘The Adventures of Luther Arkwright’ through to ‘2000AD’! Glam rock legend, David Bowie, even tried to get a movie off the ground back in the day!

"What if he’d succeeded? What if, back in the mid-seventies, there had been a live-action feature? By Hammer Films perhaps? We imagine how it might have turned out in our new comic – OCTOBRIANA: HAMMER!

Mondo Komix Underground presents award-winning writer John A. Short and artist Andrew Richmond who are bringing her back in a 28 page black and white American format comic with colour covers.

Risks and challenges

I started January 1st drawing a panel of Octobriana a day. I’m getting through the project and will finish the pages soon. I still have my cover to finish oil painting. But, everything will be finished in time - Andy
