This is the garbage you're supporting, guys.
Consider your purchases more carefully.


If it were anything like Marvel, I'd be reading more than 1 title from them.

and fuck Hab preemptively for his sure-to-be-forthcoming "Giffen did more for Captain Carrot's popularity than Roy Thomas ever did" bullshit :roll:

just when i thought nothing done to the Zoo Crew could be worse than the hatchet job Johns pulled on them back in his Teen Titans run... :smt011 :smt011 :smt011


Meh, nobody really cares.

Superman's gone the way of Peter "Can't be married no more!" Parker.
The Justice League has been remade as a bunch of squabbling jerks in the Mighty Marvel Manner.
The DCnU heroes get to be "Hated and feared by a world they've sworn to protect!"

And oh yeah: This thread is about Captain Carrot becoming a Rocket Raccoon clone.

Dan and the Gang have made it clear where they'd RATHER be working.

With licks as slick as Mercury, they first went Gold, then went Platinum, but could they hide the greatest secret of all? Their lead singer had a Tin ear.

I should have reworded that, "If they successfully imitated Marvel, I'd be reading more than 1 title from them."

I'm agreeing with you that their books have been shitty!

You youngsters may not know this but back in 1969 the Metal Men did have human guises for a while. Tina was a model and a film star 8)

And here I was thinking that skinny Amanda Waller and Nick Fury's bastard child showing up and looking like his Ultimate counterpart were stupid ideas. However, I was proven wrong when I read what this post was about. Can Dan and company come off what they were smoking when this idea made it past the planning stage?
