The year is 1962 and NASA is trying to put a man on the moon. In a remote corner of Siberia, a Soviet cosmonaut is heading the other way. Comrade Ivan Ivanovitch is dropped into an extinct volcano in his exploration pod, Little Orpheus, to explore the center of the earth. He immediately disappears.

Three years later, he emerges claiming to have saved the world. He also lost the atomic bomb powering the Little Orpheus. He is taken to a top-secret bunker deep in the Ural Mountains to be debriefed by the fearsome General Yurkovoi, a man so scary that even Stalin won’t offer him a drink. The general rolls up his sleeves, stares at Ivan with a steely gaze and says, “So… where were you comrade?” And where is my bomb? And Ivan looks him straight in the eye and says, “Well, General, you might not believe what happened to me, but I’ll do my best. Because it happened like that…”

Join our daring but hapless hero as he explores lost civilizations, underwater kingdoms, prehistoric jungles and lands beyond imagination. Gasp as he battles the subhuman Menkv tribe and escapes the clutches of horrible monsters! Encourage him as he triumphs over impossible odds and brings socialism to the underworlds!
