The highly anticipated latest film Armando Iannucci following the struggle for power following the death of Stalin was actually based on a French graphic novel of the same name by Fabien Nury and Thierry Robin.
With Iannucci’s name on it, a stellar cast, and North American distribution secured, it would only stand to reason that the source material graphic novel get an English language translation. Titan Comicswill be stepping in to publish the translation and will release it later this fall.
It’s not everyday that there’s a graphic novel that’s less about alternate history focusing on Stalin that gets adapted into a movie by the creator of Veep. So, maybe it’ll be worth your time when the English language version comes out several months from now.
