Her name means "The Spirit of October." She is the Russian she-devil, the Soviet Wonder Woman. Almost nothing is known about her background. She just... is.
Petr Sadecky, while still in Prague, enlisted the help of two Czech artists, Bohuslav Konecny and Zdenek Burian, in creating a comic centering around the character of "Amazona." Sadecky told the two that he had a buyer interested in the comic, and they worked together on writing and illustrating the Amazona comic. However, Sadecky betrayed his friends by stealing all the artwork and escaping to the West, where, in his efforts to market the Amazona comic, he changed the dialog, drew a red star on the character's forehead, and was successful only after turning Amazona into a fake political statement, "Octobriana: the spirit of the October Revolution." Major inconsistencies in his story, and a frame in his book, "Octobriana and the Russian Underground," where Octobriana is referred to as "Amazona" (p. 83), lend credence to this story. In addition, Burian and Konecny sued Sadecky in a West German court, winning the case but never recovering all their stolen artwork. Since Octobriana is still widely thought to be the product of dissident cells within the U.S.S.R., she is not copyrighted, and has appeared in a variety of artistic incarnations.
