N. V. Gogol’s novella „VIY“ (1835) is among the first and most influential horror works in Russian literature. 132 years later, a faithful adaptation for the big screen - „VIY“ (1967) is released. It is the first horror film in the Soviet Union. The story’s legacy can be felt to this day in literature, movies, animation, documentaries, video games, visual arts, etc. Viy, The King of the Gnomes, inspred us for our strip „THE PROMISE OF VIY”. With great respect to Gogol and his horror novella, we created a modern story, that takes the reader into a macabre and Gothic world.
