Happy Birthday Krypto!

Oh all right, I've no idea when Krypto was born, but as he debuted in Adventure Comics 210, cover dated March 1955, that means he's 54 this month - about a million in dog years. How sweet that Clark-Kent-who-is-secretly-Superboy can't wait to 'romp' with his newfound friend! And how surprising, given that even for an alien, that's one ugly dog: Seriously, I bow to no one in my admiration for the late Curt Swan, the greatest Superman artist of the Silver Age, but boy, he and inker John Fischetti produced one sad-looking mutt.
