am a typical fan. At first Octobriana was real
and exiting to me. Quite soon I heard about
articles talking about this world famous comics
con and she really started to haunt me.
I bumped into this busty heroine first time. We
were building up a large comics show with my
friends. We wanted to exhibit comics also from
the socialistic countries.
Octobriana's hazy history and one translated
story from the original PPP-book was then
published in our exhibition catalogue.
after 30 years Petr Sadecky introduced
Octo to us, new storits are constantly made. All
over the world! Eager fans have finally revealed
all the details of Octobrianas background, and
this just seem's to grow her stronger!
1990 I started
to work with Timo Niemi, and we made
together an album length (37 pages) story.
I wrote a 6 page script for Petri Tolppanen.
"Mission in north" was published in
Tähtivaeltaja fanzine (1/92) and it will be
reprinted (2003) in a Slovakian Octobriana
Finnish version of Bryan Talbot's Luther
Arkwright came out. Read my
rewiew of it.
Jyrki Pitkä started to plan a short
feature film called "Octobriana and
Lenin's finger". I met Jyrki first time in November
2000. Since then we have discussed together few
times about the details of this movie. The script
was made about 10 times and the premier of the
film was in 2002.
If you are not familiar with
OCTOBRIANA's background, browse
Michael Kennally's Demon Star Press pages. At the moment it
is the best Octobriana archive around. From there
you'll also find links to other Octobriana
