is a morbidly funny webcomic from Russo-Canadian digital artist Vitaly Alexius
). Set in the starkly diaphanous wreckage
of post-nuclear Manhattan, it follows an eccentric contingent of Soviet soldiers
as they poke through the detritus of the past and contend with the mutants, cultists, aliens, and other horrors that inhabit the ruins. The comic's striking art style
is the result of an arduous process, using "Photoshop, live actors, dead actors, sexy assistants, greenscreen, a camera, and a Wacom tablet"
to composite "6 years worth of textures: 1 terabyte of stock footage, shot in real abandoned, forgotten places of our world." This multimedia ambition has burgeoned into plans for a community-powered animated/live-action web series
). While waiting for that to come together, be sure to spend some time on Kimmo Lemetti's
excellent Gone With the Blastwave
), a very similar webcomic project with a more subdued palette that turned out nearly fifty pages of richly-illustrated post-apocalyptic humor before going on indefinite hiatus.
