Riassunto: Forbidden love takes flight in a 1940's era Secret Agent Mystery/Thriller. Natasha, a former WASP (Women Airforce Service Pilot) of WW2, is afraid to forget her past. While walking down memory lane, trying to find the one she loved and lost in the secret underworld of sexual deviants in 1949 San Francisco, she becomes intricately entwined in a Secret Mission that sets her off to find Sidney, an agent gone missing in Moscow. What she uncovers are the secrets to a forbidden past laced in strands of barbed wire. Can she keep her sanity as she witnesses visions of the past, present, and future, or will she become the victim of a tortured mind?
Secret Agent Moscow is a self-published graphic novel funded by Kickstarter. It was originally released in November 2013 to all Kickstarter backers and two small independent book stores in San Francisco and San Jose, California. February 14th 2014, Valentine's Day, is the official Amazon.com release of the graphic novel.
A full-color graphic novel drawn in a vibrant yet edgy style reminiscent of underground comix, Secret Agent Moscow: Part One - Goodbye, Natasha threads the memories of a former Women Airforce Service Pilot of World War II, beginning with 1949 San Francisco. Yearning to be with the one person she loved and lost, Natasha is isolated and alienated, in an era where gay and lesbian people are commonly scorned, beaten, arrested, or imprisoned. She is accused of being a sexual deviant, and coerced into a "Secret Mission" to find an agent gone missing in Moscow. The pressures of having to hide her own identity, both as a person and as a spy, threaten to unravel her mind; her search paints a historical perspective of what it was like to be L.G.B.T. in the postwar world. Entrancing, mysterious, and heartfelt, Secret Agent Moscow is recommended for older readers due to some nudity and mature content. Part two of the Secret Agent Moscow is forthcoming - the sooner the better! --Midwest Book Review
Secret Agent Moscow: Part One Goodbye, Natasha by talent graphic artist, illustrator, and author Jennifer Jigour documents in vivid colorful scenes the history behind queer life in post WWII Russia. This graphic novel can be enjoyed whether you re gay or straight, as Jigour s illustrations can equal the best of any graphic novel, and the tale she tells is a very compelling one that will draw you in and hold your attention from the start to the finish. --Douglas Cobb, Liberty Voice
Natasha is a former WASP (Women Air Force Service) pilot recruited to head a secret mission to Moscow, Russia to track down a missing agent named Sidney. She is chosen due to her Russian heritage and mastery of the language. Natasha has more than one reason in accepting the mission. She is a lesbian in a less enlightened time and she is attempting to find her lost lover Dolores, also her former WASP co-pilot. She is taken by the hand into a dreamlike whirlwind of the secret spy headquarters, where past and present merge. She completes her training and is soon on her way to Moscow. Secret Agent Moscow is not your average graphic novel. Jennifer Jigour approached this graphic novel like a piece art accompanied by a story. The narrative is loosely woven through eye-catching art that combines the spectacular art nouveau style with the wonder of the early twentieth century. The story doesn t delve much into Natasha s past or overtly explain her mission. The reader is left wondering a little about what is going on and what parts the dreams play into the bigger narrative. Jigour has a talent for detail and allows her imagination to run wild in the pages. It is a gorgeous romanticized version of what the past was. She could take out the entire story and sell Secret Agent Moscow as an art book. Jigour plans to explain more of Natasha s past in the second volume. This first volume was used to set up her reality. When it comes to this graphic novel if you don t come for the story, you should stay for the art. --Whitney Grace - Fanboy Nation
