Octobriana: Alchemy Texts


Lately, in my quest for Octobriana's comics  - I had the chance to get very valuable documents from Alchemy Texts, and I'm starting to get a clearer view of my favorite Russian Super Heroin (which is really cool!)

Among  all the issues, we discover Octobriana's many enemies, like  the mad scientist Hans Ingersol, the Russian witch Baba Yaga, Mani the Norse God, giant robots, Maiden America etc.. and discover a new meaning for "Sex Bomb" because Octobriana is riding a thermonuclear missile on a few occasions.

And also thanks to the "30th anniversary special" issue - I could get a better view of Octobriana across time - below is a brief "Time Frame" (which I hope is accurate - otherwise please comment)
