Attention recruits! This is your orientation session for Rudek and the Bear, a webcomic I’ve been publishing on and off since 2013!
As a prelude to my graphic novel in progress, this webcomic chronicles the shenanigans surrounding a company of soldiers in the Korpus Ochrony Pogranicza–the Border Protection Corps of the Second Polish Republic–in the years 1929-1930. Rudek, a malcontent Polish soldier, meets a Belarusian smuggler named Malutki, and they form an unlikely friendship. Hijinks, as they say, ensue.
