High concept: Russia. 1968. The government has legislated society and sexuality. You are afraid to love, but Octobriana fights for you. Deep in Siberia, Liuba Kulagina has been a prisoner of science since she first displayed telepathic powers. Her only relationship was an affair she had in the mind of her guard, for which he is killed. Liuba takes revenge on all of Russia and releases a thought-plague that strikes lovers across the country.

Octobriana takes notice. Left alone after being molded from the corpse of a dead god by pagan social activists, Octobriana is the goddess of passion, protecting a people at the same time she fights to understand them. With her gun in hand and her godhood on the line, she sets out across Russia's weird, 1960s landscape to put an end to Liuba's fury and rescue her people's passion.

OCTOBRIANA is proudly presented on classic newsprint in the tradition of SAMIZDAT- the underground Soviet movement to published censored art and literature.
