A Super New Year
To get 2009 off to a super start here's a great cover from the 1980 Superboy Spectacular. I've always liked Superboy better than Superman, one reason being that Superboy is slightly more vulnerable than his unstoppable super-adult self, and so he's just more interesting. But the main reason is Krypto, the super dog. That's just a fun idea, and good ol' Krypto looks like he's really having fun in this emotive cover art by Ross Andru and Dick Giordano. Yes it's a typical boy-and-his-dog scene, except that these two just happen to be in flight and are susceptible to Kryptonite. So whether you live in Smallville, Metropolis or the Bottled City of Kandor or anywhere else, here's hoping that your new year is truly super and totally Kryptonite-free.
