So this new series spins out of the Green Lantern: New Guardians Annual #1, also on sale in January, and features amongst its many characters, a Captain K'Rot.
Is this the New 52 revamping our beloved character for the new universe? Is he still going to look like a Funny Animal, or will they screw him up and draw him realistically? Scott Kolins is on art duty, so I'm sure he's more than capable of keeping him looking Funny Animal-like, but who knows if he will. Hell, we don't even know if this Captain K'Rot guy is, in fact, based on Captain Carrot. Part of me is hoping it is, and the other part is rolling his eyes, hugging his knees to himself and muttering, "Why? WHY do you have to do this?" all while rocking back and forth in the corner of the room.
And, if it is New 52 Captain Carrot, are we going to see the rest of the Zoo Crew? Only time will tell. I'll be picking up the book regardless. They just cancelled Blue Beetle, ending in January, so I need something new to add to the pull list. This will obviously go well with the other four Green Lantern titles, all of which I am currently reading.
So keep your eyes open for this new title, on sale at your LCS January 16, 2013.
