Written and illustrated by an award-winning artist and translated into English for the first time, Igort's The Ukrainian and Russian Notebooks
is a collection of two harrowing works of graphic nonfiction about life under Russian foreign rule. In The Russian Notebooks
, Igort investigates the murder of award-winning journalist and human rights activist Anna Politkoyskaya. Anna spoke out frequently against the Second Chechen War, criticizing Vladimir Putin. In The Ukrainian Notebooks
, Igort illustrates the events of the 1932 Holodomor. Little known outside of the Ukraine, the Holodomor was a government-sanctioned famine, an atrocity during Stalin's rule that killed anywhere from 1.8 to twelve million ethnic Ukrainians.
