Rasputin is about Grigori Efimovich Rasputin, a man who has the ability to heal people. When he does, he becomes just a little bit like that person, taking on little bits here and there, and gets really interesting when he heals animals...
What makes this comic so unique is that for much of the trade, it is lead by the art and has very few words. The artwork is absolutely fantastic; truly amazing and so unlike anything I have seen before.
Throughout these issues, we see different scenarios where it looks like Rasputin will die but he assures his audience that he has already seen when and how he is going to die and this isn't it. Until the last scene, where something happens and you don't know how he will come back from it. And that makes me super excited for volume 2.
