Laika’s 50th Anniversary


Seeing as today is the 50th anniversary of the Sputnik 2 launch, it seemed to be a good time to check in with Nick Abadzis, creator of the Laika graphic novel. I caught up with him last night, as he was preparing for today's Laika presentation, including a new animation and a toast to the late great Soviet space dog herself, at the ICA (Institute of Contemporary Arts) in London...

Dunno how I missed this one (actually I do, I was on vacation and having wi-fi problems), but did anyone see the Tintin movie article on AOL Money & Finance?
