The Death of Stalin is finally making its way overseas.
Titan Comics will publish the first English translation of the French graphic novel by Fabien Nury and Thierry Robin, EW exclusively learned Tuesday.
Nury and Robin’s tale — which is based on truth — takes place in the two days before the former Russian dictator’s demise after his stroke on March 2, 1953. The Death of Stalin follows the madness and power struggle that ensues in the wake of his death. (See images from The Death of Stalin below.)
The graphic novel was the inspiration for the upcoming film of the same name from Armando Iannuci (Veep) which stars Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire), Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter), Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent), Simon Russell Beale (Into the Woods), and Michael Palin (A Fish Called Wanda).
The Death of Stalin will be available for purchase July 25.. Preorder it here.
