David's Reviews > Omon Ra
Short, witty, and satiric, Omon Ra follows the (rather brief) life of Omon, a Cosmonaut. Upon joining the space program, Omon learns the horrifying truth: Although most Soviet space missions are purported to be automated, they are in fact piloted by Cosmonauts who essentially undertake suicide missions in order to tout the 'space victories' of the Soviet Union. It might not sound very funny, but it is, especially Omon's journey in his ramshackle 'automated moonwalker.'
