THE DEATH OF STALIN is coming from Titan Comics this fall. The book, from Fabien Nury and Thierry Robin, was the inspiration for the upcoming Armando Iannucci film. The film stars Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire), Simon Russell Beale (Into the Woods), Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter), Michael Palin (A Fish Called Wanda), and Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development).
THE DEATH OF STALIN is the story of a dictatorship plunged into madness. And it’s all based on truth. Joseph Stalin, the “Father of the People,” the man who reigned in absolute power over the people of Russia, had a stroke in the middle of the night on March 2nd 1953. He was declared dead two days later. Two days of fierce competition for the supreme power, two days that encapsulated all the insanity, the perversity and the inhumanity of totalitarianism.
Coming to printed editions for the first time, THE DEATH OF STALIN hits comic stores and bookstores in Fall 2017.
Stay tuned, kids…
