30 Days of The Kursk – Day 1

As we approach the anniversary of the highest profile submarine accident in our history, I wanted to take some time to reflect on why I felt this story needed to come back into the limelight.

When James approached me with his latest comic book, The Kursk, I knew that he had something special without even fully reading it. Andrea’s fantastic artwork, Sasha’s mournful tale (guided by James) and Slawomir’s eerie, striking cover, made it clear that this was not an amateur project; this was a group of experts that were clearly passionate about their work.

As we approach August 12th, I hope that you will join me in reliving this key event in our shared history. To help you get started, here is the cover for The Kursk #1. Enjoy, and when sharing with your friends, don’t forget to add #kursk
