The world’s biggest country, in a magazine. Since 1956.
KOBRA was the pen name of the journalists Konstantin Bogolyubov (pseudonym N. Konstantinov) and Yuli Sharo-Rest (pseudonym B. Rest), who published a series of satirical feuilletons during the 1930s in the newspaper Literary Leningrad. Though lesser known than their peers, Ilya Ilf and Evgeny Petrov, the duo produced a significant body of work that was eventually collected in The Tales of KOBRA, published in Leningrad in 1965. Bogolyubov was executed during the Great Purge in 1937, at the age of 32.
