Laika is a book which has me awestruck. Laika was a dog who involuntarily gave
her life for her time (five hours) in space. I agree with Oleg Georgivitch an the afterwords. The cartoonish display makes it even better by giving you a visualization of the words, and the words themselves. Nick Abadzis has done it again. "Another masterpiece. Bravo!" Yelena Dubrovsky, Laika's caretaker (who cried as she saw the launch because she knew that someday she would die in Sputnik II, up in space), in one month has attached to Laika, just as I have in the 2 hours it took me to read the book. Inspiring in all, I'll never look at the Soviet dog Laika, or the Soviets themselves, the same way again. Amazing how you can just pick a puppy off of the street and schedule her to be the first living animal in orbit of the earth. Really amazing.
