Product Details


“Utkin’s series of graphic novels based on Russian folklore features lush illustrations that alternate between crisp figure drawings and natural elements that seem to burst off the page.”—Meduza

“If you grew up on Ingri and Edgar Parin d’Aulaire’s books of Greek, Norse and American mythology, poring over the pictures at least as much as the text, then this is what you’re looking for in the modern era. Beautiful character design, vibrant color and nicely varied panel structure…”—Paste Magazine, “The 20 Best Kids Comics of 2018”

“…one may remember that fairytales are most often told to children. But while kids will certainly enjoy The King Of Birds, Alexander Utkin imbues this book with an energy that is enchanting to all.”—The Comics Journal

“Utkin’s rendering of Russian mythology succeeds through its use of simple folklore and inspired artwork.”
Library Journal

“Utkin’s work is mesmerizing and haunting both visually and narratively, his striking characters wavering between majestic and malevolent.”
Publishers Weekly

“Utkin’s art is different from that found in most mythology books; his vigorous lines and vibrant colors beautifully portray all kinds of animals and mythical creatures in action.”
VOYA Magazine
