Russian Children's Magazine: Komsomol " Veselye Kartinki " (1964) (part 2)
Part two of my post about this 1964 Russian children's magazine. Today I want to share a great comic strip that was in this issue. It reminds me a great deal of Tin Tin but is even more of a fantasy adventure.
Who knew that the Russians sent both kids and dogs into space?
There is something illogical about what the boy is doing but I can't quite put my finger on it....
Another triumph for the Soviet space program. I do wonder a little about the parachute return that leaves the rocket sitting upside down in the ground on its point. Oh well, last of this magazine in the next posting.
