Krypto, Ace, Streaky, the Legion of Super-Pets — and MORE!
Hey, I dunno if you’ve heard but May 2022 will bring us the Warner Bros. animated flick DC League of Super-Pets, starring the voices of Dwayne Johnson as Krypto the Superdog and Kevin Hart as Ace the Bat-Hound (not to mention talents such as Kate McKinnon, John Krasinski, Keanu Reeves and Jameela Jamil).
How much fun is that?
But you know what’s also fun? DC is preparing a softcover collection pegged to the movie’s theatrical release, called — wait for it — Tails of the Super Pets!, featuring some seriously groovy Golden and Silver Age stories.
Dig the official description, from an Amazon listing:
TAILS OF THE SUPER PETS!
Where would our heroes be without their Super Pets? Follow the adventures of Krypto the Super-Dog, Streaky the Super-Cat, and Ace the Bat-Hound in this incredible collection!
The Super Pets are icons in their own right! Collected together are the tales of Krypto the Super-Dog, Streaky the Super-Cat, and Ace the Bat-Hound through a variety of classic comics! This collection includes stories from Action Comics #261-266, 277-293; Batman #125; Adventure Comics #210-256, 293-322, 364; Superman #176; Wonder Woman #23; and Superboy #76!
A few thoughts:
— The film is due May 20, 2022. The 184-page softcover is due May 3. It lists for $19.99.
— That Wonder Woman issue? Yes, it’s a Kanga-palooza!
— Inspired casting: Lex Luthor will be voiced by Marc Maron. (I also love that the trailer riffs on the Superman: The Movie credits.)
— Standard caveat: This has not been solicited by DC yet, so nothing is official until it’s official. Even then, things can change. Just keep coming to 13th Dimension for updates.
