Today I was posting online about some of the cheesy comics from the 1980’s and Captain Carrot and His Amazing Zoo Crew immediately came to mind.
This total cheese comic was the brainchild of Roy Thomas and Scott Shaw!. Yes, Scott has an exclamation point at the end of his name.
Anyway, I loved this as a kid. Captain Carrot first appeared in New Teen Titans 16 as an insert with Superman appearing. Then, he rolled off into a 20 issue series, of which I have each issue. And, I do admit it.
This year, DC gave CCAHAZC a three issue series. However, when I spoke with Scott Shaw! at the 2007 San Diego Comic-Con, I thought this was to be an ongoing series. I didn’t like the cliff-hanger at the end, but we’ll see if they come back.
Scott, if you ever want to sell that 2-page spread of Comic-con that was in the first issue, let me know.
