About the Author

Michael Cherkas was born in Oshawa, Ontario in 1954 from Ukrainian roots. He has worked for over 30 years as a graphic designer, art director, cartoonist and illustrator. He still enjoys using non-repro blue pencils, brush, India ink and paper when making comics. His other graphic novels include the critically praised The Silent Invasion.


"Red Harvest is a gripping historical graphic novel covering the oppression and starvation of Ukrainian farmers under Soviet rule...exposing some of the roots of Russo-Ukrainian hostilities, Red Harvest is...moving and enlightening." --Peter Dabbene, Foreword Reviews
"In loose, unpretentious lines, Cherkas draws vivid characters who radiate personality, and his scenes of rural Ukrainian life, traditions, food, and culture are well-researched and composed with affection. Cherkas brilliantly encompasses the scope of a genocide in an emotionally gripping human story." --Publishers Weekly
"Cherkas draws the comic in a self-described raw and sketchy black-and-white style that captures emotion, landscape, and pain equally well. . . . Red Harvest is a timely, intense reminder of the horrors once inflicted upon the Ukrainian people." --Booklist Reviews
"Rendered with wit, tact and great reserve, it adds meat to history's bones, tracing the slow, gradual, hopeless decline and repercussions very much in the manner later employed in George Orwell's Animal Farm." --Win Wiacek, Now Read This
"A somber and moving read."--Shona Reads
