The Ukrainian version of the comic helped raise more than UAH 4.5 million for drones for the Armed Forces.

The comic "PEREMOHA: Victory for Ukraine" became a finalist for the Benjamin Franklin Award in the "Graphic Novel" category, and this is stated on the official page of the award.

"PEREMOHA: Victory for Ukraine" is an English translation of the Ukrainian comic collection "The Road to Victory" — a joint project of The Will Production publishing house and Art Nation production company.

The painting consists of ten graphic novels, each created in the author's style and genre. Among the authors of the comic: Oleksandr Koreshkov, Kateryna Kosheleva, Yevgeny Tonchilov, Volodymyr Povoroznyk, Oleg Okunev, Igor Kurilin, Maksym Bogdanovskyi, Bohdana Vitkovska, Nazar Ponik, Kyril Malov and Oleksiy Bondarenko. They all reacted with their own creativity to Russia's full-scale military invasion of Ukraine.

Victory for Ukraine is a collection created by Ukrainian artists during the first weeks of the Russian invasion, channeling all their emotions - their anger, courage dreams, and despair into one goal, one manifestation of their nation’s fight for survival!
