Congratulations to Nick Abadzis for a richly deserved Eisner Award — Best Publication for Teens — for the magnificent LAIKA.*


Congratulations also to Gipi, whose gorgeous GARAGE BAND was nominated for Best US Edition of International Material.

*By a wonderful coincidence, on the day that LAIKA won the Eisner – July 25 – internet cult figure and most excellent musician Jonathan Coulton released a song about the very same dog. You can read about it and download it here, at Coulton’s blog.

    Fantastic. Both of these are terrifically worthy and excellent. Great to see them recognized so.

    Congrats, Nick!
    Laika is one of my favs from the 01: catalogue.
