The Howling Curmudgeons point out the many many things wrong with Geoff Johns’ return of Captain Carrot and His Amazing Zoo Crew.
Personally, I thought the last page was the best example of why people say “show, don’t tell” I’ve seen in a long while. It’s nothing but characters telling each other what had happened previously. BORRRRRRING! And unnecessarily nasty, like so many DC comics these days, and completely unbelievable if you knew anything about the characters before this issue.
Oh, and not only did Johns manage to tarnish one of my favorite comics from my younger days, he threw in a bonus, smearing the former Kid Devil while he was at it.
Every time I try a current DC comic, it just reminds me why we’re all happier if I stay far away.
