You'd Have to Have a Lot of Extra Lives to Not Care if You are Casually Killed by a Falling Safe and Other Observations


Hot on the heals of our newest meme comes yet another new meme, with assistance for the concept from contributor Robert Gillis, who provided us with today's panels.

Ladies and gents, I give you...

the Excessively Impossibly Expository Monologue(tm!)  

I know!  It's like an early Valentine's gift, isn't it?

Here's a great example from Jimmy Olsen #71:


Jimmy either thinks really quickly, or that safe is falling verrrrrrrry slowly.

From that same issue....


As every comic book nerdlinger knows, what happens in Jimmy Olsen comics stays in Jimmy Olsen comics...

From Superman Family #176.  Superham Jr. is one of the most abusive dog owners ever.  In this scene, he takes Krypto's favorite thing for a week... and it was for something Krypto didn't even do!




What's the matter, Superham Jr.?  Out of poison?

Besides which, Krypto is a dog.  He will have totally forgotten why he's being punished ten minutes later, and will (rightly) assume his master is just an abusive jerk.

See you tomorrow!

Seriously......did Superboy know that Krypto was as fully intelligent as a human? Was it ever shown in the comics that he knew?

Thank you for posting these Adam! More to come. BTW, in the same story, Krypto hatches a plan with Superboy and says, "Yip, Yip, that's means yes in our code." Didn't he have a code for the MSPCA???!!

Well, Marv, I think Robert answered the question. If Stuporboy recognized that Krypto could verbally communicate with him, he had to have some inkling that Krypto was a pretty sharp cookie.
