Just the Coolest Comic Moment of the Year

With 2009 here I have been reading a whole lot of comic book 'best of' lists which got me thinking about the kind of year it has been in popular culture - one of my most favorite topics. I could repeat many of the lists I respect but I have decided to distill it all down to this three panel sequence from Superman 680. Superman has been getting the crap kicked out of him by the villian Atlas and its left to his dog Krypto to hold the line for his master to come up with a plan to defeat Atlas. It may not be manly for me to admit this but I cried like a little girl after reading this issue. I don't want to forget that feeling in a world where so few things have the power to affect like that. Long Live Krypto - THE Superdog.
