Going on sale tomorrow (10/10) is the first issue of a new DC Comics’ three-issue mini-series, CAPTAIN CARROT AND THE FINAL ARK, reviving the Zoo Crew characters created by Roy Thomas and Scott Shaw over twenty-five years ago. The new series is written by Bongo’s Bill Morrison, drawn by Scott Shaw!, and inked by Al Gordon. Scott says:
Not a “kiddie comic” — but, like THE SIMPSONS and ROCKY AND HIS FRIENDS, with a multi-tiered sense of humor that appeals to younger readers as well. The new Captain Carrot explores a world of “funny animals” that mirrors (and parodies) those of more traditional comic books. We also make fun of comic book conventions, J. J. Abrams’ upcoming giant monster movie, DC’s 52 and COUNTDOWN series, Tex Avery, Sergio AragonÃƒÂ©s, Prince, Ed “Big Daddy” Roth, Jack Kirby’s NEW GODS and much more.
Scott and Bill will appear in person tomorrow afternoon from 4pm to 6pm at Golden Apple Comics in Northridge (8967 Reseda Blvd.) to sign the first copies.
