A Character To Learn More About

Posted by BRiAN On January - 16 - 2010

For a while now I have been posting a thing on the BNW Facebook page [why not become a fan?] that I was calling “A Character to Know More About” in which I spotlighted obscure and sweet [interesting] characters that you should probably know more about. Click to see who it is! In continuing with that idea I will be posting those characters of interest here on the BNW site. While I have tried, at times, to do really off the beaten path characters in the past but this week I’m going to go with a more known character [ he is in the current issue of Adventure Comics which hit the shelves this past Wednesday btw ]…


You’ve got to love a dog in a cape! Superman’s [ er at the time he was Superboy ] dog was first introduced by Otto Binder and Curt Swan in the March 1955 issue of Adventure Comics #220.

read his Wikipedia entry here

and his Comic Vine entry here

As I do these weekly posts I try to play it fair and do a DC character one week and then a Marvel character the next and so on…now keep your eyes peeled for more obscure characters in the Saturdays ahead.

If there are any suggestions for whom you may like to see here in this section shoot me an email with any suggestions [BRiAN]

In past months I posted characters like: Stick, Dupli Kate and Triplicate Girl (as a Two-fer), Hugo Strange, Nate Grey, Mr Mind, Edwin Jarvis, Damien Wayne, Omega the Unknown, The Mouthpiece, Dum Dum Dugan, Slam Bradley, Robotman (Cliff Steele), M.O.D.O.K. and all 3 Mister Miracles.  There were others and you can find them on the facebook page deep within it’s history.

    Dude, I love Krypto! He rocks. And he definitely deserves his own book.
