Stalin vs Hitler – comic relettered

The following has been re-posted from the old johnl.org:

This is a comic shown to me by friend Meron. It was originally in Russian by Alexey Lipatov, but an anonymous individual translated it the dialogue into English. It was re-formatted by Thomas Silbey. I went one step further and re-lettered the comic in English, in 2005.

I re-lettered all the dialogue and narrations. I re-lettered most of the special effects, necessitating some re-drawing of the backgrounds. Some special effects I left because they made sense as they were or because they would have been hard to replicate. I took some slight liberties with the text. I know Stalin sounds a bit like Seán Connery, and I like it! Imagine the Scot playing Stalin in the biopic...

If any of the aforementioned people object to this re-lettered comic, please contact me.

You'll have to click Read More to see the comic!

    Pretty sweet. Also, nice to see somebody drawing from the historical fact that it was actually the Soviet Union that defeated German in WW2.

    Sweet comic!

    About the soviet defeated the germans, don't forget those little details, like when the US sent USSR 2.000.000 trucks, tons of ammo, planes and weapons

    A popular saying: The soviet provided the bodies, the US the ammunition (this is of course a simplification as the USSR produced quite a lot themselves).

    Hey. I got a 502 gateway error earlier today when I tried to access this page. Anyone else had the problem?

  12. Dr. Magoonga Says:

    Canada, Britain, etc. were involved in fighting Nazi Germany just a tiny bit too. The USA actually came in VERY late (years after many countries). It true though that their help, when it finally arrived, was very important.

  13. Adolf Hitler Says:

    I shall own the whole world!!!!! You people can hate me but I hate the Jews!!!!!!! One day, one day, you will see Nazi Germany rise and defeat every country in one piece!!!!!

    That would be a bit more impressive if you could actually spell "Nazi" or "Sieg Heil".

    fuck all you dickless neo-Nazis

  17. mecklerburn Says:

    mega-awesome comic, but I don't like Stalin to win. >_>

  18. BungaApeFlex#1Jew Says:

    That's right, Stalin won the war. America didn't do shit. No one did but Stalin. Over 75% of Germany's forces were fighting in the east. To be fighting on the western front was considered a luxury and even leave taking, and fighting on the east was real duty. America provided the ammunition? The soviets the bodies? What a crass and disgusting thing to say. As if any comparision could be made to sacraficing human lives could be made. That's like Brazil winning Soccer World Cup and the company that made the BALL being like "well we really won since we provided the ball"

  22. RT Says:

    Fuck you. Stalin wasn't evil. He did what he head to do in dark times to prevent his country from being destroyed. He was harsh, he was cruel and he was a dictator - but just like with Ivan IV (whom Stalin idolized), his actions while questionable, were necessary and served the greater good. Of course, americans game them both a lot of bad rep in the Cold War.

  24. Sam Says:

    well i liked the comic, it was kind of short but was ok....and the other thing is very ignorant people coment about Stalin and Hittler were bad...and what's about countries that make invasions to other countries for oil...i'm not saying who is bad just i say people have to think before to talk...anyway talking about the comic it was very good story, never seen such stuff before, peace!

  25. Z3R0 Says:

    RT wtf are you talking about!? Stalin was an evil evil man! he re-wrote history to make himself seem like the hero! he killed thousands of people for no reason, hell he would have someone killed if they were the first person to stop clapping at his speeches! and you are saying he was a great man!? I hope you die you fucking autocratic tyrant!

    also everyone seems to be forgetting the british here? the English and the Russians were the main part of the war, the Americans just joined, because the Nazi's attacked em, if it wasn't for that, you wouldn't have even joined! and sure you helped us, but you barely did a ting, England and Russia (Russia especially) were already low on supplies when the war started, the only reason you helped us is because it took your fat asses too long to actually join the war!

  26. Ichai Says:

    Both were evil bastards. Hitler just died first.

    Speaking as an American, I'd like to point out that it wasn't just the Soviets who defeated Germany. Yes, they did do the bulk of the ground fighting in Germany itself, but the western front and Italian fronts were also important, and it was a group effort.
    I will grant however that the US didn't do half as much as most Americans claim, even if it does make for good TV.

    (Also, the US did do the bulk of the work fighting the Japanese, which is part of the reason we didn't contribute as much to the European theater.)

  27. RT Says:

    Z3R0: "killed thousands of people for no reason" is pure, 100% bullshit.

  28. Z3R0 Says:

    RT: Have you been living under a fucking rock? take your head out of stalins arse and see what actually happened and what has been documented by history and was witnessed by the world as a whole why don't yuh?

  29. LOLTruth Says:

    Stalin responsible for over 10 million deaths. He destroyed food supplies of farmers, "deported" millions of people, and killed anybody who he didn't like. He was a brute who fought his way to the top after the power-void of Lenin's death. If you're going to make shit up, do it to your throwback friends, not on the internet.

  30. Scarface Says:

    Stalin and the URSS are the true heroes o world war 2. There is no possible comparation between Hitler and Stalin, It's like comparing the Devol with Jesus. The USA just sent some supplies to the URSS because they think that URSS was week and that they dind't have chances agaisnt de Nazi's. What the USA really wants was that they destroyed each other, germany would win destroying the communists.

    I liked how Lenin was teaching Stalin about how to use his power. It is like Yoda training Luke.

  39. Dmitry Says:

    Few things: 1) US entered WW2 against germany pretty much like they did WW1 - when everyone else was pretty much exhausted and the winner was clear. 2) US profited immensely, selling weapons and oil to BOTH. Sometimes straight up screwing their "allies", for example they force desperate UK trade bases for 50 destroyers, that were built back in WW1 and were in such a bad shape that 6 of them sunk by themselves before getting to Britain. US sold oil to Germany via Argentine, Spain and Brazil. US owned big stock in Focke Wolf and others factories and those factories were NEVER bombed by us 8th Air Army.
    3) US did NOT supply Russians with much tanks. Even tanks that they did supply, many of them were shitty M3 Light and M3 Medium, only some were Shermans (which Soviets LIKED!!!!). US Didn't supply Soviets with many planes. However those which they did supply were mostly popular: P39, A20 were well liked (not as much as Spitfire mk V and MK IX which brits gave).
    4) US did supply lots of cars and trucks. True. However MOST important thing that US supplied to USSR was... canned food. Which kept many people in the rear alive and able to work in munition factories.
