Creators: Mail Order Masha is an online comic exploring the amalgamation of modern Russian and Western culture through examining the common stereotypes that exist in both perspectives. It began as an offshoot of the political art of Nadia Khuzina and her husband Jakob Mikhailovich Slutskiy’s exposure to high society in both Russia and the West.
Nadia, who earned her MFA from the prestigious St. Petersburg Academy of Art and Industry of Stieglitz, refuses to watch American television, and uses the extra time gained from being tv-less by augmenting her fine art career with these shitty comics. It was either Dance Moms, Toddlers and Tiaras, Say Yes to the Dress, or this. Nadia donates the rest of her remaining time savings generously to sleep.
At 18, Jakob once helped sue a large utility company that cheated him out of $50 successfully for over $28 million, most of which went to his lawyers and the State of California. He also traced a paedophile that wrote him a bad check back to his hideout Mexico by socially engineering access to his email through the highest ranks of Yahoo!, and then pieced together dozens of victims who all contacted the same said email address of the criminal. The bad guy is now doing over 100 years in federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison in America. All because he refused to honor the value of a small check to Mr. Slutskiy.
Jakob, who by now you should understand is a bit of a wrecking ball, lost his lucrative trading career due to unforeseen circumstance, and has decided to unleash his quiescent cynicism on the world through helping Nadia write this comic. He is the kind of person who actually does what he says he will, especially when it involves suing someone.
