Steve Orlando (Octobriana Kickstarter) and Peileppe (Octobriana Fan Blog) joins Fes and Mark to discuss Octobriana! Her original creation and origin has much debate. However, Octobriana herself was essentially designed as an uncopyrighted comic heroine, of sexual expression and underground rebellion, from behind the Iron Curtain.
* Peileppe said he forgot to talk about the Czech artists : Bohumil Konecny, Zdenek Burian – that were the true artists behind the book “Octobriana and the Russian underground” back in the 70s). Also that he should have mentioned Karel Jerie (www.kareljerie.cz) who has drawn a remake of Octobriana.
