Batman and The Legion of Super-Pets



I am a big animal lover as my family always had plenty of pets when I was growing up. For that reason, the concept of a super group made up of animal sidekicks was quite appealing to me. I still have a cat but her main superpower is the ability to wake me up at the same exact time each morning. Actually, that has come in handy more than once.

I still think pet superheroes are a great way to introduce the youngest viewers and readers into the world of comics. The animated Krypto: the Super-Dog and Marvel's Pet Avengers mini-series are a step in the right direction.

This was a very early request and I could never quite match up the contrast with all of the characters. Then someone suggested that the Legion of Super-Pets were zapping in from the Phantom Zone and I thought that was a no-prize worthy explanation!

One of my favorite covers you've done so far -- that's probably because I own a white boxer named Krypto (who has his own Facebook page as "Krypto T. Superdog" where he insists he's the actual comics Krypto)!

I love, love, LOVE the LOSP! I still think that the labeling of Proty II as a "pet" is a bit disrespectful to him and his race but if that's the only way to get my Proty fix, then so be it.

I think KoKo would be a better choice for membership. I can do without Beppo.

I'm still loving these! I wish I could buy and read each and every one of them!

I love it. I always knew the super-pets were up to no good.
