I'm back! And reading! And maybe even blogging! No promises!

Hee.

Is it weird that I totally think there should be a Superfriends type pet book? You know, with Krypto, Streaky, Comet, that Bat-Dog from the seventies (Ace?), and so on?

They could all have adorable animal adventures with superpowers!

It might be awkward working a counterpart for Aquaman, but I like imagining a fish in one of those land suits from Futurama. :-)

I dunno, it just seems like one of those things that could be unbearably cute or extremely annoying. Win-win!

    There used to be some, or at least back-ups. Which is where the team of super-powered dogs in the Krypto cartoon came from...

    Aquaman had a giant seahorse mount and a walrus sidekick. I think Hal had some weird alien thing as a pet sidekick...

    There's a whole super-pet book series available, I know that much. I haven't ordered them for my library yet, but I'm going to. DC easy reader books practically have their own catalog! It's so awesome.

    In the cartoon Aquaman had a Sea Horse he rode called Stormy. The was a Walrus as well, but the name escapes me right now. Am I totally a lost cause that I own the Aquaman Cartoon DVD?

    No, it's not weird, and yes, there totally should be such a book.

    Tusky, I believe the name of Aquaman's walrus friend was. He appeared in at least one story during Peter David's run on Aquaman.

    A team like you suggest did appear in recent-ish issues of Super Friends
    http://www.comics.org/issue/610683/cover/4/
    and Tiny Titans
    http://www.comics.org/issue/757330/cover/4/.

    And while it's certainly not canon, if you're interested in a DC super-pet team line-up, you may enjoy my 2007 post, "The Tornado's Pets," if you haven't already seen it:

    (Brad Meltzer's first issues of JLoA are sorta necessary for context, though)

    Time for a return of the Legion Of Super-Pets?

    "Members include Krypto the Super-Dog and Streaky the Supercat. The team first appeared in Adventure Comics #293 (February 1962)"
