Krypto #155: Animated Hero Unanimated

From: Krypto the Superdog #1, 3-6 (November 2006, January-April 2007)

Krypto's animated series was supported by a tie-in comic which lasted 6 issues starring Superdog and his friends Streaky, Ace and the Dog Star Patrol. In the comic, he rescues Kevin one day and they become friends; Superman only show up later and lets Kevin take care of him. He's autonomous from day one. So today, Siskoid's Blog of Geekery brings you his five best moments from five of those issues, keeping issue 2 in reserve because it features other iterations of Krypto. Here goes...

From issue 1: Interrogation techniques
You you're gonna get that fink to rat out his friends, bring a cat along to play bad cop. Love the bit about the Joker's hyenas. Because super-animal stories should only really star animals.

From issue 3: Like cats and dogs
Who's the best between Krypto and Streaky? Well, my being a cat person makes me want to justify this sequence by saying Streaky is being mind-controlled and not using his feline cleverness to its utmost potential, but... we gotta give the point to Krypto.

From issue 4: A day in the life
Goes to show that beyond the big adventures that make up his show and comic, Krypto keeps busy all day with good works that may be less flashy, but nonetheless changes lives by saving them! Good boy!

From issue 5: Krypto vs. the Three Naughty Doggies
Exiled from Krypton and rocketed into space (because that's Jor-El's solution to everything), Dom, Vlea and Tronk eventually got to Earth and became Krypto's "Phantom Zone Villains". With Kevin's help, Superdog would expose them to kryptonite and send them on their merry way back into space, destination Sirius, a planet where no one has any fun.

From issue 6: Like cats and dogs, revisited
Pet owners who have BOTH cats and dogs know that these creatures CAN and DO live together in harmony. In this series, we of course have Krypto and Streaky working together, but very often, cats are represented as villains. And yet, Krypto can be a hero to both populations, as when he finds some strays waiting outside a shut-down restaurant for scraps.

But what of issue 2? Just wait a week.
