Rewards include a Kickstarter-exclusive cover and an opportunity to get a signed and numbered copy of John A. Short’s book about the history of cult comix character Octobriana, which reveals the background to the original 1971 book that introduced the world to the Spirit of the October Revolution.

Reviewed on downthetubes here by Tony Esmond, the book traces the many uses of the character from the proposed David Bowie movie in the seventies through The Adventures of Luther Arkwright up to 2015 when the book was published and includes a 40-page, full-colour Octobriana comic strip by Short & Noble featuring New Amazon Liberty and super-villains Putin and Kim Jong Un…
