Nick Abadzis interview on Animal Inventory Blog

 LAIKA_COVER_lores_RGB


Nick Abadzis was recently interviewed about his Eisner-award winning book, Laika, at the wonderfully specific Animal Inventory Blog, which tracks and analyzes the use of animals and animal imagery in media and pop culture.

"One of the functions of myth in human culture is to understand the abstract; the viewpoints we can’t rationally describe or comprehend. The story of Laika is a modern myth; we need to attempt to look at it from her point of view, too."


It's a fascinating conversation, and an illuminating examination of a great book from a new (to me) perspective.

Go, read!
