Written by Fabien Nury (The Chronicles Of Legion)​ ​and illustrated by Thierry Robin, THE DEATH OF STALIN graphic novel is the story of a dictatorship​ ​plunged into madness.

He was declared dead two days later. Two days of fierce competition for the supreme power, two days that encapsulated all the insanity, the perversity and the inhumanity of totalitarianism.
