DESCRIPTION:

A (semi)-historical short comic about jazz, teen rebellion, and ghosts in the USSR.

The ‘stilyagi’ of 1940s-1960s Russia rebelled against the iron grip of Soviet censorship by embracing what they could of Western culture. They idolized American rock and jazz, but, as the music was banned in the USSR, they resort to drastic and creative measures to bring their contraband obsession to life.

8 pages.
