The final exhibition at ComMission festival in Moscow will show the full story of comics marathon runners through the country, and also all comic strips prepared for the project in Russian regions. Especially for the final event, a limited edition collection of works by Comics Marathon participants will be published.
The day everything started the character/hero of the story walked down the street and talked on the phone. Suddenly he saw the Secretary General of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union who was quite surprised and didn’t understand where he was and what was going on. The hero didn’t pay attention to that event although was curios who and why had decided to cosplay one of the Soviet leaders. However, going further he met a woman whose face seemed familiar to him. Looking at her face, he recognized a famous actress of the previous century. According to the laws of logics it was not possible, but she was there weeping. The character talked to the woman to find out what was going on. She explained that leaving her home she had noticed a strange door. She opened it and found herself in an unknown place. But there was no way back the door had disappeared. The character suggested going to that place, he found the door and helped her return. At night, one more strange event happened. Coming home, the character realized that in his office there are two people waiting for him: a tall slim guy with glasses and a fat bold woman.
Uninvited guests told him about time vortices. They informed that they were the only ones who dealt with this issue and serious people were behind them. They detected him when sending the actress back he closed the time vortex. The problem was that usually they closed time vortices with a special time stabilizer a special spray which was very difficult to produce. At the moment, there is no spray available. Only a tall guy can find time vortices and he is sure that they will open in several Russian cities simultaneously during the nearest six months. Therefore, the character has a choice to help them or to be liquidated since he knows lots of super-secrets.
What will happen to these three people? It depends on the Comics-Marathon participants!
