Opinion

From Library Staff

Of all the literature surrounding the enigmatic Rasputin, this graphic novel flares with authenticity and bite. The color, the story, the characters, they all swirl in a great palette of history and locale. Highly recommended.

This is a terrific graphic novel about the plot to assasinate Rasputin. An excellent spy story with suspense and dread and the artwork is beautiful. You can practically feel the cold. I highly recommend this book if you like spy stories, Russian history, or just like great graphic novels.
