Louie Del Carmen & Bobby Chiu's Superman And Krypto Pitch
It goes without saying that there are a lot of great superhero comics out there, but it's always fun (and a little bit of a bummer) to see the great comics that didn't come out. Not every pitch is accepted, after all, and while a lot of them never leave the planning stages, there a few that make it all the way to being drawn, and sometimes, they are truly fantastic. Case in point: A ten-apage story that animation artist Louie del Carmen and illustrator Bobby Chiu created a few years back for "a proposed Superman anthology" that never saw print. It did, however, make it all the way to roughs, and this week, del Carmen posted them on his website, telling the full story of Superman and Krypto teaming up to bust an illegal interstellar zoo. And it is pretty great.
