Action Comics: R.I.P.

I don't know if we'd call this spoilers at this point, but it was just reported that panelists at NYCC confirm that

is no longer among the living in the re-launch.

And I admit, I am flustered and disappointed. Shucks, big time.

The DCU will never be the same again.

I thought someone already noticed this in #2? I remember someone mentioning this a few days ago already

No, somebody mistook the corpse of a goat for Krypto. I'm not sure how, honestly.

I can understand them not including Krypto in the new 52 but to kill him off is just wrong. :(

@Kal'smahboi: Unfortunately, the rumor is that the mistaken goat corpse was in fact Krypto. Which is bizarre.

@danhimself: They have indeed, it seems no longer to be likely.

Now, this is all just in Grant's Action Comics. If you're a huge Krypto fan (as I am) and find that dead goat corpse Krypto is not 'our' Krypto... then advocate for it. Jor-El can have his Krypto... and we still have the opportunity to introduce new Krypto. After all, Supergirl was similarly dead then re-introduced, once upon a time.

I'm not really sure what you're saying here. The dead goat isn't Krypto at all. The death of Krypto has nothing to do with whatLex showed Supes in #2.

Byrne also didn't have krypto at first, he was erased but was eventually brought into continuity.

Don't worry people
