Panel 1: Jor-El and Lara's home on Krypton. Jor-El sits at his computer console, turning to face Lara and rolling his eyes. If possible, the screen of his computer should read "POTENTIAL SEISMIC INSTABILITY". Lara carries a box with a little white puppy, Krypto, poking out, wagging his tail.
JOR-EL: For Rao's sake, Lara...
LARA: I couldn't just leave him in the bio-sci labs, Jor-El. You know what happens to those animals.
LARA: Don't worry; I'll take complete care of him. You won't have to do anything.
Panel 2: Jor-El pacing around their living room, gesturing angrily. Krypto, now a bit bigger, sits up on the couch, watching him in the classic HMV pose. Jor-El is looking at Krypto, as if he can understand.
JOR-EL: Can you believe it?! They refused my proposal again!
JOR-EL: It's almost like they don't want to know whether this planet -- the one we live on -- is safe or not!
Panel 3: Jor-El sits at his console, which displays a familiar, small spaceship. Krypto sits next to him and Jor-El rubs behind the dog's ears. Krypto is now full-size.
JOR-EL: Don't worry, friend, you'll be safe. Better off than staying here, anyway.
JOR-EL: And, if it works for you...
Panel 4: Jor-El and Krypto asleep on the couch together. Behind them, Lara stands, hands on hips, but smiling wide.
