Convergence: Harley Quinn article

So I just want to thank Mon Prime for alerting me to this piece of news. has just posted an interview with Convergence: Harley Quinn writer Steve Pugh. Convergence: Harley Quinn, for those of you living under a rock lately, is the two issue Convergence tie-in where Harley fights Captain Carrot. And probably ends up teaming up with him, too.

The interview is great, so check it out by clicking here. I'll have to admit, though, the thing that got me the most excited was this image that was posted on the interview page:

Looks like we're getting the old-school appearance for Captain Carrot this go around! YES!! It's about bloody time! Although it looks like he's losing the fight in that pic (which I'm assuming is a cover for one of the issues). Don't know how I feel about that, as I'm pretty sure the good Captain could kick Harley's ass. But it is her book, so you know how that goes.

Convergence: Harley Quinn by writer Steve Pugh and artist Phil Winslade, hits stands April 8th, 2015.

BUY IT!!!!

Captain Carrot vs. Harley Quinn in CONVERGENCE mini

Not sure about the rest of the Zoo Crew, but it looks like Harley Quinn is going up against Captain Carrot in her Convergence mini-series. No art of the good Captain yet, but here's the cover:

Writer: Steve Pugh
Artist: Phil Winslade and John Dell
Harley Quinn is enjoying her normal life under the dome until Catwoman and Poison Ivy draft her to fight Captain Carrot.

Sounds like fun. More on this as the news comes in. Thanks to Mon Prime for bringing this to my attention. You can get more information on what other mini-series are coming out for Convergence by clicking here.

Random Panel of the Day #6

Convergence Promo Picture

Wait! Who is that I see over on the right? Yup, it's the Zoo Crew! Wish they'd pick a look and stick with it though. Still, this version looks to be closer to the actual Captain Carrot we all know and love than the Multiversity one, so I'm happy.

Dragon Con 2014 Cosplay Crossover

A blog crossover, you ask? And Captain Carrot's Burrow is actually getting to participate for once? Yes. Yes it is true. How did this come to pass? Well...

Apparently there was this little shindig down in Atlanta recently called DragonCon. I think it's a comic book convention or something like that. Okay okay, I know what DragonCon is, but being poor AND living in Canada doesn't allow me to attend such things. I do, however, keep my eyes on them. Writing your own comic and running three different blogs, you kind of have to.

This year, due to a lot of personal issues (breaking up with my fiance, having to move AND being in a car accident that has left me with some crazy form of amnesia), I wasn't paying any attention to anything around me. So imagine my surprise when John Godwin sent me this X 3:

I was all "Holy crap! Somebody actually cosplayed as Captain Carrot!? And it's a pretty girl to boot?"

Then Shag from over at Firestorm Fan sent me these pics:

The model's name is Krystle Starr and you can head on over to facebook and LIKE her page here. She has a lot of very good cosplay pictures as various different super-heroes posted on her page. So go check them out.

She's also Chief of Staff for Samaze Magazine and there are tons more DragonCon 2014 pictures featuring Krystle and a lot of others, posted on their website. So check that out as well by clicking here.

As mentioned, several different blogs have teamed-up today to cover some of the amazing cosplayers at Dragon Con 2014! Visit these other character-specific blogs to see how they spotlight their own favorite heroes today. Visit them now, visit them later, and visit them often! (Shag wrote that, not me. I lifted it from his site because I am lazy.)

*Black Canary & Arrow @ Flowers & Fishnets
*Blue Beetle @ Kord Industries

Looks like a fun time was had by all, and hey, maybe next year we'll get the whole Zoo Crew.

Wizard Magazine Captain Carrot April Fool's Article (May 2004)

Well, look what I finally managed to track down. It took quite a while, but I finally found a scan of the article that goes with the Phil Jimenez art I posted on the blog a few months back. The article, contained in the May 2004 April Fool's issue of Wizard Magazine (sorely missed) tells of a supposed 6 issue mini-series, written by Geoff Johns with art by Phil Jimenez. The series would star Captain Carrot and the Zoo Crew, with guest appearances by the Swamp Thing, Hoppy the Marvel Bunny, and Green Lambkin from the Justa Lotta Animals. The basic storyline is one that is familiar to all Captain Carrot fans, as it later appeared in issues 30 and 31 of the 2003 run of Teen Titans.

The Teen Titans story, was of course, a much truncated version of what is outlined in the article below. I really wish that they would have made THIS series, instead of the small couple of pages we ended up with. This series would have been fantastic, and I would have loved to see the Swamp Thing team up with the Zoo Crew. I think it would have been cool if they brought back the Zoo Crew's swampy villain Mudd from issue #4 of Captain Carrot and His Amazing Zoo Crew (June 1982), to go up against Swamp Thing. Alas, it was not to be. Just another cruel April Fool's joke on the part of Wizard Magazine.

I hate April Fool's unless I'm the one playing the jokes.

Enjoy the article, and thanks to Shag Matthews from over at Firestorm Fan for bringing this the thing to my attention way back when. Yes, it took me this long to track it down, but I didn't forget.

Oh, and before I forget. The issue number of Wizard for this article is #151. Now go read it, enjoy it, and wish longingly for good things that never happened.

Keep on Crewzin', folks!

Random Panel(s) of the Day #5

Sorry to muck up a Random Panel entry with words (gasp), but I'm confused by Multiversity's Captain Carrot. Is this supposed to be the actual Captain Carrot? He says he's met Superman before (New Teen Titans # 16 and Captain Carrot and his Amazing Zoo Crew #1).

Anybody know? If he is supposed to be the real, true one and only Captain Carrot, then WHY DIDN'T THEY JUST DRAW HIM CORRECTLY??

New Captain Carrot MULTIVERSITY image!

Found a new Multiversity image today featuring Captain Carrot. While not what I was hoping for when an internet friend e-mailed me to tell me about it (I was hoping for an actual panel or two from the story), it's still a great image.

Love the homage to Action Comics #1. Can't wait to read this book.

Multiversity #1 hits comics stores this month. August 20th to be exact.
