    I liked the second story better since it featured the Dog Star Patrol (including Drooly)

    and Streaky.

    Well, I've read Krypto #2 today and ... well, the lead-off story involved Kevin and Krypto sent pinballing through dimensions courtesy of Red Kryptonite. The second story, well, I'm not going to spoil it except to say that it involved special missiles aimed for Earth's sun and it also involved the ENTIRE Dog Star Patrol (INCLUDING both Streaky AND Drooly). Any more than that would spoil TOO MUCH. I'd rather see you reading it for yourself. :-D
    Thanks sounds great.. Drooly realy. I have to get this one .

    Good morning all.  I had some GREAT news waiting for me in my mailbox this morning.   I received a reply from Jesse McCann overnight and would like to share it with all of you.

    Hey Carl!

    Believe it or not, I just discovered your site last week when I was doing a vanity search to see if anyone was saying anything about K-Dog comics! Thanks for the kind words.

    Don't know if I'll have time in the near future to register and stop by the site (I've been doing a lot of Krypto signings in comic stores -- I'm off to Phoenix tomorrow), but maybe you'll give a good word to everybody there from me (and, of course to Casey, too).  Meantime, if anybody there has questions, you can e-mail them to me, I'll answer you and you can tell them.

    Before I leave tomorrow, I'm finishing up a story called "Deliver Our Mail Carrier" where Krypto and the Dog Stars save an intergalactic mailman from Mechanikat and Snooky.  The running joke is they like the mailman, although they can't stop barking and growling at him for some reason. It's a puzzler.  This iss for issue six.  The very last story in the run is called "You Bet Your Sweet Beppo," and it guest-stars Beppo the Super Monkey and Comet the Super Horse.

    After that ... well, that remains to be seen.  If sales are good, DC might consider doing more.  They've definitely tossed around the idea of collecting the miniseries into a trade collection.  If you want to see the series continue, you can write to Bob Wayne and/or Paul Levitz at DC and plead Krypto's case.  DC Comics address is 1700 Broadway, New York, NY  10019.  It never hurts for them to get letters from fans who want a series to live on (but it's certainly no guarantee either).

    Thanks for writing.  Gotta go! Take it easy!

    Best

    Jesse L McCann

    Well, there you have it my friends.  We are being given a golden opportunity and must take full advantage of this.  I will begin writing my letter today and will mail it by the weekend.  I encourage all of you to do the same.  If you learn that Jesse will be in your area at a signing, be sure to go and tell him hello and that you're a member of the KTS forum on tv.com.

    Have a great weekend.  Until later, take care

    Thanks a lot for sharing this message, Ladsone. :-D Those upcoming wrap-up stories sound like they could be pretty cute indeed. :-D Especially that second story in the issue. Beppo the Super Monkey AND Comet the Superhorse? Man alive. :-D

    Wow. It looks like they decided to use the guys we made after all. Congrats to whoever originally made Comet and Beppo.

    Actually Isaac, Comet and Beppo are old Silver Age DC creations we decided to update for the KTSD-verse. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beppo_%28comics%29

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comet_%28DC_Comics%29

    But that'd be cool if they ever did use fan chars.

    On the e-mail: Sweetness, Ladsone! I especially can't wait to see what he does with Beppo and Comet, oughta be interesting. I can see that I'll definately be doing some letter writing this week.

    For those of us who don't live near a comic book store, there are comic book dealers online who sell  Krypto and other comic books, I just did a search and compared prices.   I received Krypto #2 in the mail  the other day and enjoyed it quite a bit.

    Thanks for posting the letter from Mr. McCann, Ladsone. I'm also looking forward to that story with Beppo and Comet. Good to see the old Silver Age characters getting work.

    Yes I just got the first two Comics. Found then in a book store. I love the when they show all the dimensions with Krypto in them. The old superdog , bathound , and supercat and cowdog krypto and the robo-krypto and robo-ace ones are my favs.I like the Krypto that looks like dogwood too. Why did Kevin try to give Krypto CHOCOLATE shakes.? What was that ???

    Hi everyone.  Just wanted to let you know I received an e-mail from Jesse this afternoon reminding me that Krypto number 3 goes on sale Wednesday.

    Just to let everyone know, hop over to the DC website to see the cover to issue #6 of Krypto.

    Funny!

    Yeah, I'm looking forward to that. Too bad it's the last issue of the mini-series, but let's hope we get some more Krypto comics in the near future.

    I e-mailed Jesse Leon McCann, the writer of the Krypto comic books the other day. I mentioned wanting to see Streaky get the spotlight in some stories and he graciously replied with this intriguing teaser:

    There's more Streaky in future issues, including one where he is turned to the Dark Side by Mechanikat.

    I can't wait to see that.

    Great news indeed.  I picked up my copies this afternoon and was very pleased.  Jesse and his staff have done a fantastic job on the first three, I can't wait to see the others.  Could this be a hint that there will be more episodes after number six? I guess we'll all find out very soon.

    I hadn't thought of that, guess we'll see. With any luck, I'll get my copy by early next week.

    Hello my friends.  Just got back from seeing "Casino Royale" this evening.  Excellent movie.  When I came home, I noticed I received another e-mail from Jesse with some very good news.  I'm including a link so you can see it for yourselves.

    Hope all is going well with each of you.  Until later, take care.

    LADSONE

    P.S.  Will be heading for Tampa to spend Thanksgiving with Casey and his family.  I will have my laptop with me in case another story idea comes along.  L/ONE

    Hrm, I actually thought that the blog writer was being rather sarcastic with his (her) comments. Am I just looking too much into things

    Hey thought this might be worth mentioning: A supermarket center here just changed ownership and when I was in there yesterday they'd added a coffee shop and large newstand complete with comics, including Krypto #3!  I was surprised to actually see it on the stands out here in the country. Maybe there's hope that those far from a comic store can still find copies of the comic if there's a major magazine seller nearby.
