Here's a microsite for a graphic novel about Laika the first animal in space. Definitely going to buy this one.

It's always so hard to know if a comic book (hate that term graphic novel, it's worse than "adult motel") is right for me, I usually just flip through it real fast to make sure I'm buying something I want to look at for a hundred pages. I can't read the dialog because it usually gives something away, so it's almost always a guess—which is part of the fun, I think.

A new comic book store opened up near our apartment called Neon Monster. It's good.
