This article describes the phenomenon of the appearance of comic strips about Russian immigrants in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, which formed a kind of culturological type, interesting for comic strip researchers, sociologists, culturologists and narratologists. Since it seems interesting to us to consider comics as a text united by a system of cultural markers/codes that are specific to immigration in general, and to Belgrade immigration in particular, it would help us to understand the context of everyday life that has developed not only among Russian emigrants of the First wave, but also the context of the country which accepted them. Immigration has not only occurred, but has been subject of a high degree of mythologization, which created quite specific typological models.
