COMIC-STRIP HEROINE OF A COMMUNIST UNDERGROUND - Here we publish, for the first time in the West, the face and pneumatic figure of a secret comic-strip heroine of the Underground movement in Russia, who exists despite the highly repressive Government and a puritanical society. Smuggled reports reveal a Barbarella -like figure stalking the pages of a clandestine press. In the magazine Mtsyry Octobriana sweeps the world, upholding the principles of total freedom and human self-realisation combating the oppression of the Kremlin and of other regimes.

Anthony Lejeune and Tom Stacey tell how she was created, and how she was brought to Britain 7 pages
