The Russia House Of Ideas: An Interview With Russia's Bubble
You can't talk about Russian comics without discussing Bubble. Since its inception in 2011, this little-engine-that-could has grown into the largest comic book publisher in Russia. Shepherded by CEO/publisher Artem Gabrelyanov and editor-in-chief Roman Kotkov, Bubble has a growing stable of titles, and an influence that is only beginning to reach across the Atlantic. ComicsAlliance spoke with Gabrelyanov and Kotkov about censorship, propaganda, and Russia/US relations, and we even got around to talking about comics.
