Masha Protas
Masha is a very young but super-promising and already successful artist. She started from a very popular webtune «Cheap and Angry» that was recently reorganized into 3 fat paper books, 200+ pages each. The whole story tells about a young guy who ran away from his abusive family in deep countryside to a big city. He meets a lot of kind people, makes new friends, but still the only thing he wants is to be a wanderer. Together with his new friend he will continue his endless trip, but it will be hard to run from himself... Beside a really nice and personal story (based on the author’s early life), this book is deeply impregnated with post-Soviet vibes, an athmosphere of social housing, residential areas and carefree youth. This book got several reprints and the summary print run is more than 30 000 copies.
Eugene Kiyamau
Eugene is an extremely talented comic book artist from Belarus. He started from small funny fanzines in Belarusian language, and his first big book fantasy «Irving, the Evil Wizard» became a huge success. With the humor of the current interests (King gave an order to Irving to rescue Third Reich authorities from Hell to make the Kingdom great again), it got 3 reprints and thousands of positive reviews. Irving became the most remarkable character at the Post-USSR comic book scene. A few years after «Irving and Varvara the Barbarian» was published — an iconic acid fantasy adventure with rude and topical humor that you love in Adult Swim classic cartoons. You even can find a small animation with Irving on YouTube.
