No Cold Turkey For Thanksgiving

May you not be fighting with a cold turkey this Thanksgiving...unlike Captain Carrot and his Amazing Zoo Crew (Pig-Iron, Alley-Kat Abra, Fastback, Rubberduck and Yankee Poodle).

This, from the wonder series of funny animals, with a cover by Scott Shaw!, and interiors by E. Nelson Bridwell, Scott Shaw!, Stan Goldberg and Al Gordon for Captain Carrot and the Amazing Zoo Crew #13 (March, 1983).

Of course, Captain Carrot and friends lived on Earth-C, a world populated by talking animals....and, wouldn't you know it, they had their own Crisis as well (but that's a story for another time).


  1. I have every issue. Loved Captain Carrot. I first discovered back issue buying when I found and bought nearly all the issues I was at a swap meet in the early 1980s in San Diego. Back when you could get old comics for LESS than cover price at places like that simply because they were OLD!

    I still remember them lying in the letters page and saying the series wasn't ending due to poor sales but instead because the artist couldn't keep pace with the schedule, or something like that.

    1. Should read that I found "nearly all the issues I was missing" at a swap meet.
