Now, this is not the full-blown Showcase Presents that would have reprinted every issue of the original Captain Carrot run, which was cancelled incidentally. That was the book I was so excited about, just so you know. What we’ve got collected here are: the new, 3 issue mini and just few stories that seem most relevant to countdown. Although it’s in color… I’ve already got these in comic form, so I’m a little conflicted. To me, it seems like the other animal superhero adventures will never see the light of day again. That would be sad. However, this collection does prove that there is some level of support for the zoo crew within DC and with the general public and that is absolutely a good thing. We all could use a lot more fun in our funny books.
If you bought an issue of Captain Carrot and the Final Ark, thanks from a fan.
