There are many that love spoilers. I'm not a big fan of them myself but there are times when they can be hard to resist. Once again our mysterious benefactor sent an image from today's ACTION COMICS #13. I'm hesitant to post but this may not be a huge spoiler.

In ACTION COMICS, we've seen Krypto a few times. Actually, he's appeared in issues 3 and 5 and issue 3 mentioned of a "ghost dog" watching over Clark. Issue 5 showed Krypto's attempt to save Superman and his parents by jumping into the Phantom Zone. The solicit of issue 13 mentions the return of Krypto. But will it be a return that will make readers happy?

Here's an image from today's issue.

It appears that Krypto will be emerging somehow from the Phantom Zone. Unfortunately he doesn't look too good. Would Grant Morrison and DC label this as "the return of Krypto" only for us to see him perish? They did decide to kill of Ma and Pa Kent after all. Superman is supposed to feel alone and isolated, which lead to the kiss with Wonder Woman in JUSTICE LEAGUE #12.

You can bet I'll be reading this issue as soon as I get back from the comic shop today. Will Krypto survive? Is there a place for a Superdog in the New 52?

Teaming up with Batcow too. I'd give that book a look.

Long as he's back, I'm cool.

He looks like a cross between the old Krypto and the new Krypto we saw previously. It might just be a bad shot and he still looks like the new version.

Now that would be just cruel. Hopefully GM wouldn't do that...

Wouldn't he?

No way DC could get away with killing a loyal pet. Whether it's Krypto, or Bat-Hound, or Streaky, the point is there are animal lovers out there in the comic world who could get very nasty if provoked. I'm one of them, so I know what I'm talking about.

NOOOO! DONT DIE KRYPTO :,( If you want to kill off someone DC kill off another hero or villain (as were kinda used to that by now) but don't Kill off the Dog! (or small children... yeh we still remember that). Live Krypto! LIVE!

@sora_thekey: No He's definitely bigger than he was before. He looks like a wolf-dog hybrid now.

Noooo! Not Krypto! He's my favorite super powered pet!

Krypto better not die or else Morrison will!

#18 Posted by BigBDawg (256 posts) - - Show Bio

@sora_thekey: Since he first appeared in flashbacks to Krypton before its' destruction in the New 52, yes. In the original timeline, he wasn't ever that big. Now he's like a wolf almost! XD

yes the most badass puppy returns

Krypto!

I already read this issue. I cried so much. Such a touching story.

#23 Posted by CircularLogic (282 posts) - - Show Bio

Krypto is freaking huge. Actually, that's pretty damn awesome. I always loved clifford.

I really hope he doesn't die. Superman needs something to keep his titles from being a dreary affair

#24 Posted by DEGRAAF (7810 posts) - - Show Bio

Krypto looks like he is the size of a deer or something. He looks bigger then your average large dog thats for sure. I hope he is actually. I think it would be cool for him to look like an over sized wolf (now that i think about it, something similar to "wolf" from the young Justice cartoons)

#25 Posted by Supes1903 (137 posts) - - Show Bio

I fear for the fate of the person who brought this pain down on Krypto. There are two things a man holds dearest to his heart, the love of his live and his dog.

Winter is coming DC, superman needs his wolf

#28 Posted by Wolverine0628 (398 posts) - - Show Bio

I hope they don't kill Krypto. Sure, he's a mostly useless character (can I call an animal a character?), but he makes me smile. Now I kind of wish that Ace the Bat-Hound was back, too.

#29 Posted by warlock360 (26898 posts) - - Show Bio

now some new superhero emerges with a kryptic name which is a for Anagram for "PETA" like.. "ATEP" or something..

#30 Edited by Psycho_Soldier (108 posts) - - Show Bio

He also makes a cameo in Swamp Thing 13

I enjoy this book so much better when Rags Morales is not on art. Travel Foreman rocked this out!

#35 Posted by TheElusiveNewReader (50 posts) - - Show Bio

He won't die becuase, if you didn't notice, he makes a cameo in Swamp Thing #13

Technically they already have a "Bat hound" in Batman only his name is Titus. He's basically Ace in spirit.

So if Krypto came back seriously injured from the Phantom Zone, does this mean my theory that Michael Vick has taken up residence there might be solid?

#42 Posted by sethysquare (3843 posts) - - Show Bio

I hope Sholly Fisch continue to do back ups for AC. He is a great writer.

#43 Posted by Wolverine0628 (398 posts) - - Show Bio

@JohnnyGat: Really? Which series is that?

#44 Edited by Wolfrazer (4936 posts) - - Show Bio

Krypto better not die!....Why does Superman need WW when he has Krypto the best super pet ever?...He better not come back, only to have him die I will be mad if that happens. Supes needs his super man's best friend, there will always be a place for Krypto!

#45 Posted by KZR (487 posts) - - Show Bio

There's a Batcow?

Batman and Robin. Bruce gives Damian a pet dog who Damian named Titus. He may not be the crime fighting dog but as I said he's the Wayne family dog so technically Ace in spirit.

#49 Posted by Wolverine0628 (398 posts) - - Show Bio

@JohnnyGat: I'm sure Bruce loves having a pet dog AND a bratty teenager in his house.
