    It will be interesting that they are going to work in the Captain Carrot cameo from Teen Titans into the series...I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing...

    "The Final Ark"

    With a title like that, one can only hope for the return of "Oklahoma Bones and Whipley".

    Sorry, no Oklahoma Bones, but you'll be seeing a lot of other characters from the original series, plus some new ones.

    Oh, and excellent though it is, Jeff's article neglected to mention that CAPTAIN CARROT AND THE FINAL ARK is also a direct tie-in to COUNTDOWN!

    Questions, anyone?

    Aloha,

    Scott!

    Questions, anyone?
    Thanks for asking.

    I know the regular series is being reprinted in a Showcase edition.

    Is the Oz/Wonderland War going to be reprinted anytime?

    No, THE OZ-WONDERLAND WAR won't be included in the SHOWCASE PRESENTS: CAPTAIN CARROT AND HIS AMAZING ZOO CREW! collection.

    And although Bill and I are about to start on the third issue of CAPTAIN CARROT AND THE FINAL ARK, we've yet to be told which number Earth that the planet formerly known as "Earth-C" is or exactly which issue(s) of COUNTDOWN that our little miniseries will cross over into...but I DO know that CCATFA is definitely "A COUNTDOWN Tie-In!"

    Aloha,

    Scott!

    Not even a side-reference? I always figured Okie would be considered a "reserve". Bunny from Beyond == coolest looking villain ever.

    Kind of like how you left it off with Cold Turkey; I thought he might eventually make it onto the team proper.

    Plus... Whirlibird!

    With ties into Countdown, I expect to see the Time Keeper.

    The Showcase is a black-and-white reprint, correct? To me, that diminishes it's value; always liked the vibrant colors.

    Sorry, no Oklahoma Bones, no Whipley, no Cold Turkey, no Time Keeper, no Bunny From Beyond...at least not in THESE densely plot-packed three issues, that is!

    However, if everyone buys copies of CAPTAIN CARROT and it does really well for DC and becomes a series or at least a series of mini-series, I'd love to bring back any and all of the above for repeat performances.

    Believe me, as far as I'm concerned, there's no shortage of story possibilites for the ZOO CREW!

    And here's a question for YOU:

    What's a "yiffer"?

    Aloha,

    Scott!

    Any chance of seeing the croaking colossus called FROGZILLA!

    I'll buy multiple copies of this if you include Frogzilla.

    So Captain Carrot gets a miniseries, but Plastic man doesn't?

    Ugh.

    Plastic Man had an ongoing series. It didn't sell enough copies and was cancelled. *shrug*

    And having seen the pencils for issue 1 at SDCC, I can say that this is the best work Scott Shaw has ever done! It's going to be GREAT!

    Ra's al Paca?


    Mr. Sahw!, that is some true funny-book genius!

    I like the idea of land animals vs. water animals. I sense some awkward moments between Fastback and Rubberduck with the rest of The Zoo Crew.

    If Frogzilla is appearing, will the Dodo pop up, too?



    EDIT: In an unrelated question to this particular series, does anyone know whatever happened to Rick Hoberg?
