Okay, here comes another conjectural character, this one based upon the sory "The Ordeal of Chief Parker" from Superboy #116. In the story, Superboy meets a counterpart of himself from an alternate universe who sports a reversed color scheme chest symbol (which I have done as a figure in the past). This story got me thinking that this other Superboy might have a Krypto of his own, so I decided to make one to go along with the existing Earth-116 Superboy that I did ages back.

The figure is a pretty straight-forward custom. I slapped on a new cape symbol that was colored to match the chest symbol of the Earth-116 Superboy with a little glue (the symbol was made by hand at a larger size, and then photocopied and shrunk to proper size...however, unlike previous hand drawn symbols I had done before, this one was drawn with a slight curve to each of the sides as well as a slightly smaller size to more match the look of the "S" symbol of the late Silver Age/Bronze Age of Superboy stories), and TA-DA...Krypto the Superdog from the alternate world of Earth-116!!!!

Please let me know what you guys think of him, and as always, comments are appreciated.

Thanks, Bacchus. I'm glad you liked him. I just felt that the Earth-116 Superboy needed his own Krypto.
