It’s been almost 75 years since Sergei Eisenstein’s epic battle film Alexander Nevsky was released. The 1938 movie told the tale of one of Russia’s greatest heroes, a 13th-century prince who rallied the battle to fend off the Golden Horde of Mongolia. But the film did not represent Eisenstein’s complete vision, nor did it greatly adhere to the truth. Now, an intense and groundbreaking graphic novel picks up the pieces of the great film.
