Format: Hardcover
A timeless story of the battle for freedom through patriotism is retold in a vibrant new form this Spring with Nevsky, an original graphic novel adaptation of Sergei Eisenstein's classic film "Alexander Nevsky" (1938). Written by Ben McCool (Memoir, Pigs) with art by rising star Mario Guevara (Solomon Kane, Victorian Undead) and edited by Scott Dunbier, this full-length graphic novel is a stunning re-imagination of Eisenstein's famed film.

Alexander Nevsky - decidedly the most popular figure in Russian history - is a much-loved historical leader who helped establish the Russian nation by defeating the Teutonic Knights. These invaders were the last vestiges of the Holy Roman Empire and drove out from Germany bringing oppression and religious intolerance with them. In 1242, Nevsky with an army of soldiers and citizens defeated the Teutonic Knights in a spectacular battle on the frozen Lake Peipus, an achievement celebrated in Russia to this day.

Eisenstein was a revolutionary figure who is to Russian film what Chekhov and Tolstoy are to its literature. In 1938, Eisenstein, was already celebrated for his groundbreaking films "Battleship Potemkin" (1925) and "October" (1928), brought the story of Nevsky's battles to life in a stirring epic that featured a score by Sergei Prokofiev. The spectacular closing scene of the Battle on the Ice has been studied by filmmakers from David Lean to Steven Spielberg to Walt Disney Animation. Although caught up in the politics of the time - Eisenstein was frequently out of favor with Joseph Stalin - the film became a worldwide classic.

This is the first-ever graphic novel adaptation of this classic Eisentein epic film, bringing it to a new generation of readers and film-goers.

great book in the same vein as Sin City and 300, interesting in that they would use an obscure Russian War hero from which to make a book such as this. But the whole thing works both as graphic novel and a history lesson.
nicely done.

It more than met my expectations as it was relatively true to the storyline. Great tale told here, and, through the drawings, it defined Russian nationalism and heroics perfectly. You would have thought the Nazis would have remembered this epic before invading the Soviet Union... I had to see Eisenstein's classic film again. afterwards..

Few historical figures are as revered in Russia as Alexander Nevsky, who defeated the Livonians on the famous Battle on the Ice, and who was immortalized in Sergei Eisenstein's 1938 film, Alexander Nevsky.

This new graphic novel is based on Eisenstein's film, and not on the more subtle historical record, which raises questions about Nevsky's appeasement of the Mongol Horde, his use of the Mongols to divide and conquer his princely rivals, and his brutal repression of independent-minded Novgorod. But, never matter, Eisenstein told a good tale (albeit one tinged with the anti-Fascist message Stalin dictated), and this book is full of amazing illustrations and only a few narrative hiccups that forced a bit of back and forth page turning.

As reviewed in Russian Life magazine.
