Last month, Superman #712 was replaced with an older unused story from Kurt Busiek featuring Krypto, while the original was supposed to feature a Muslim hero by JMS and Chris Roberson.
It was reported that, in the story, there was a scene with Superman saving a kitten from a tree - that the executives at DC apparently frowned on.
So they axed the original story.
However, in this week's issue of Superman #713 - there is a scene with Supes saving a kitten (okay, from a roof)!
Now, what kool kat came up with that one? (laughs) And what was the REAL reason for #712 being replaced?!
Update: Here's the reference.
