Written by Rodolfo Martinez

May 5, 2014

The Kursk by Sasha Janowicz is the graphic novel adaptation of The Kursk. K-141 Kursk was an Oscar-II class nuclear-powered cruise missle submarine of the Russian Navy, lost with all hands when it sank in the Barents Sea on 12 August 2000.

Andrea Montano combines her fearless expression in rendering The Kursk by Sasha Janowicz. She contrasts manga and anime with noir, German Expressionism and Chiaroscuro illustration in this macabre political thirller.

In 2010, Australia nominated Sasha Janowicz’s play for the Helpmann Awards for Performing Arts. Sasha won the 2007 Bell Award for Best New Play, and three Matilda Award – Best New Australian Play, Best Direction, and Best Independent Production.
