Laika: Words and Pictures and Music

LAIKA_COVER_lores


Laika (the graphic novel about the first dog to travel to outer space by Nick Abadzis) is tragic and wonderful and pulls on all of our heartstrings here at First Second.  So when Nick e-mailed us to say that an Italian composer named Luca Tozzi also had his heartstrings tugged on by the book, we were all pretty unsurprised.  But Nick went on to tell us that Luca had been inspired to create some music for Laika, and that's just totally awesome. 

Yay for inspiration! 

Now there's a video up on youtube that combines the music with some pages from Laika, and it looks and sounds absolutely lovely. 

[go, watch!]
