Octobriana, the Russian devil-woman who embodies the true, untarnished spirit of the Communist Revolution and who fights against Soviet authoritarianism, made her debut 50 years ago. Octobriana was first introduced to the world in Octobriana and the Russian Underground by Petr Sadecký, published in the UK in 1971.

To celebrate fifty years of Octobriana, writer Stu Taylor (2000 AD, Warhammer Monthly) has assembled the Octobriana With Love: 50th Anniversary Special, which he describes as “an all-new anthology that celebrates her 50th anniversary and features exciting takes on the character by some of the biggest names in comics today.” Octobriana With Love: 50th Anniversary Special is a full color, 64-page anthology featuring all-new material.

The main cover for Octobriana With Love: 50th Anniversary Special is by Marguerite Sauvage (DC Bombshells, Faith) with variant covers by Joyce Chin (Red Sonja, Wynona Earp) and Michael Cho (Batwoman, Inhumans vs X-Men). Inside is artwork by a talented lineup of creators, including Simon Fraser (2000 AD, Grindhouse), Marc Laming (Planet Hulk, Star Wars), Stephen Byrne (Green Arrow, Wonder Twins) and N. Steven Harris (Aztek, Michael Cray).

Octobriana With Love is on course for a comic store release for the direct market edition by December 22nd.

Diamond Distribution order codes for the comic store versions are SEP211446 (Marguerite Sauvage cover A) and SEP211447 (Joyce Chin cover B). The Michael Cho variant is only available as a retailer incentive, so please speak to your local comic store for info on that!
