I’m having a difficult time believing this argument between an editor and the author of a book on Superman is real

Slate published this transcript of a phone call between the author of Superman: The Unauthorized Biography and his editor. “I gotta cut Krypto,” the editor begins and it only gets better as the author describes how essential Krypto is.

As our story opens, Superboy learns that a super powerful pup has staged a mass breakout from the Smallville dogcatcher’s paddy wagon. Superboy tracks the hound to the wreckage of the rocket ship that has recently delivered it to Earth.

Oy for sure.
