It’s not even Christmas but here’s an eight page comic for you to read right now.

Techfilm Studio, Moscow 1940.

Still lots of debate as to whether this one’s real or not but a good’un nonetheless.

It was mentioned in Time magazine in November 1943. “The autojector can also keep a dog’s heart beating outside its body, has kept a decapitated dog’s head alive for hours—the head cocked its ears at a noise and licked its chops when citric acid was smeared on them.”
