Kristo

Twenty years avenged in twenty days.

Kristo is a mashup of The Count of Monte Cristo, Bolshevik Russia and Solzhenitsyn, and features the stunning vision and craft of Alex Sheikman (Robotika, Dark Crystal), with colours by Kris Carter (Lou Scannon) and edits from Yannick Morin (Epic Kill).

When Aleksandr Sozlzhenitsyn, the Russian Nobel Laureate and dissident was only a baby, his father died in a hunting accident.
