Victory for Ukraine is a collection of short comic stories created by Ukrainian artists during the first weeks of the Russian invasion- channeling all their emotions - their anger- courage dreams- and despair into one goal- one manifestation of their nation's fight for survival! The war comes to readers (for ages 12+) in nine stories that humanize the conflict in Ukraine in a unique and emotionally lasting way with a focus on the heroism of the Ukrainian people and military in the face of overwhelming forces. Witness the struggles of brave defenders in cities like Kyiv- Mariupol- Kherson- and Snake Island- and how the utter insanity and irony of the war is told from the standpoint of a looted Ukrainian washing machine- and a humble farm tractor that wants to steal Russian tanks. A portion of the proceeds will go to Razom for Ukraine - ('Razom' meaning 'together' in Ukrainian)- a non-profit Ukrainian-American human rights organization established to give direct support to the people of Ukraine in their pursuit of a democratic society with dignity- justice- and human and civil rights for all. The stories in PEREMOHA: VICTORY FOR UKRAINE include: Episode 1: The Ghost of Kyiv - the now legendary story of an invincible ace Ukrainian fighter pilot - the Ghost of Kyiv - a man who protected hundreds of thousands of Kyivans- their children and homes during the first 30 hours of a massive attack on the city when he shot down 6 Russian planes Episode 2: The Witch - Witches hold a distinct and storied place in Ukrainian culture. Witness how Russian soldiers bent on terrorizing the civilian population find more than they bargain for when they meet a vengeful Ukrainian witch on a deserted road. Episode 3: Azov-Stal - This story is about the Azov regiment- the marines- border guards and policemen; who held out against incredible odds in the long-suffering city on the shores of the Sea of Azov; about the people who became hostages of the bloodthirsty military machine of the Russians. Episode 4: Looters - The looting of the Russian army and the ironic fate of a Ukrainian washing machine Episode 5: Zmiinyi Island 13 -The now iconic battle for Snake Island- where a band of brave Ukrainian solders defied the Russian navy and the proclaimed the legendary phrase that the world now knows - 'Russian Warship F...ck Yourself.' Episode 6: Throughout the Centuries - Ordinary Ukrainians take up arms against the Russian army using ancient earthen ramparts called the Snake Walls- built during the time of Kyivan Rus by Princes Volodymyr the Great and Yaroslav the Wise in the 9th and 10th Centuries to defend their lands from attacks from the southeast by nomadic tribes. In WW2- they were part of the defense lines against the Nazis and today they have helped to slow down and menace the advance of the invading Russian army. Episode 7: Brave Little Tractor - An inspiring about an unlikely hero - a brave Ukrainian farm tractor that steals Russian army tanks Episode 8: Cyber Kherson - An inspiring story of a new breed of Ukrainian rebels using technology to continue the struggle for democracy under brutal Russian occupation in the city of Kherson- located near Crimea and the eastern Donbas region. Episode 9: The Price of Victory - How ordinary people in Ukraine went to war to defend their home- families- freedom- and fight for the right to live in their own free country and determine their own futures. 'VICTORY FOR UKRAINE grew out of tremendous upheaval caused by the invasion and my personal experience hosting some displaced families at my home in Berlin where I now reside. As I learned more about what was happening- we connected with the talented Ukrainian creators- artists and writers that brought the book to life. These stories are vignettes- originally created and published to inspire the people of Ukraine- but they will leave a lasting impression on readers around the world. The stories are steeped in the realities of the war but depicted in a very relatable way. We invite readers to discover this book and to stand for victory and freedom with the people of Ukraine.' - Stu Levy- Founder/CEO of TOKYOPOP. 'My personal slogan is 'Create where you are.' We create new works even in times of war. The memorable events of the first weeks of the Ukrainian-Russian war and the exploits of ordinary Ukrainians inspired us to merge it in several stories to perpetuate the moments of resilience and courage of Ukrainians.' - Eduard Akhramovych- Founder of the Ukrainian-based creative collective- Art Nation- and General Producer of VICTORY FOR UKRAINE 'We are very grateful to TOKYOPOP for this creative and exciting initiative. At Razom- we focus on amplifying the voice of Ukrainians and we are so excited to see Ukrainian creators participating in this collaboration. All contributions enable us to remain resolute in our mission to build a free and prosperous Ukraine. As Russia's war rages on- we need to continue to amplify Ukrainian voices and continue to provide critical medical supplies.' - Dora Chomiak- President of Razom for Ukraine
