Is the graphic novel version of The Death of Stalin any good?

The movie’s probably going to be a Movie of the Week when it finally comes out on DVD — The Death of Stalin is eminently suitable for the honor — but if the graphic novel version of “The Death of Stalin” is stupid then I don’t want to spend money on it.  Of course, usually if the movie’s good then the thing that it was based on is at least not wretched, but that’s not a completely reliable rule.  Anybody out there read the comics?

My mini-review of “The Death of Stalin.”

Short version: legitimately funny while at the same time noting just how gruesomely awful Soviet Communism was.  I don’t know if you need to see The Death of Stalin in theaters, but if you do you won’t be wasting your time.

Hey. So maybe The Death of Stalin doesn’t suck.

A 95%/81% score on Rotten Tomatoes isn’t half bad; and of the negative reviews for The Death of Stalin, easily the most incoherently vitriolic is by the woman who put all her Commie affiliations in her Rotten Tomatoes bio.  I was wondering why the site was even bothering to include people of that ilk, but upon reflection it’s obvious. It’s fun to watch them impotently fume.

Anyway, I may end up seeing this in theaters after all. If I can find one in my area that’s showing it. It’s not exactly blockbuster material.

‘The Death of Stalin’ trailer.

As God is my witness, I don’t know whether this is going to be annoying or not.
