Ignore Captain Carrot’s Return

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.

    It’s like PETA doing an ad in which they club a baby seal to death in order to prove that clubbing baby seals is bad.

    Bwahahahaha…. I think I’ll avoid that.

    I’d dropped Teen Titans when Liefeld came aboard, and was going to stay away from it for good, but Captain Carrot tempted me to pick it up again. With that, Johns managed to do what Liefeld only flirted with: killed my interest in the series completely.

    Never read Captain Carrot myself, so no idea about any of those characters. But if Johns has written them with his usual lack of skill and sublety, then I can see your point.
