Captain Carrot Creator Scott Shaw Is Mad Because He Isn't Getting Paid For Captain K'Rot



DC Comics new cosmic ongoing, Threshold, from Keith Giffen and former Marvel Cosmic artist Tom Raney, has a lot of us excited around the CBN offices.

With Marvel castrating Nova and Guardians of the Galaxy, and with Giffen saying he is attempting to do something similar with Threshold that he did with Annihiltation and Guardians, this seems right up our alley.

The solicit for Threshold #3 revealed a new character, Captain K'Rot, sort of similar to Rocket Raccoon.

Giffen said it's the New 52 take on the DC Comics character Captain Carrot, as he told CBR:

Giffen confirmed to Comic Book Resources that Captain K’Rot is indeed his take on Captain Carrot. Asked whether he was a longtime fan of the original series, Giffen quipped, “There was a series?” Ever the joker. He quickly added, “Every book needs a borderline psychotic, booze swilling, whore-mongering rabbit. I mean, c’mon!”

Now, the co-creator of Captain Carrot, Scott Shaw, has chimed in and offered his thoughts on the new Captain K'Rot:

“As long as it’s not really Captain Carrot, I don’t care. If anything, I’m kinda amused by their rather lame attempt to fit an ‘edgy’ funny animal into the ‘New 52′ universe. Somehow, it reminds me of Warner Bros. Animation’s terrible LOONATICS UNLEASHED SatAM cartoon series. Where’s Ch’p, Thunderbunny, Jaxxon, Bucky O’Hare, Rocket Raccoon and Howard the Duck when we need ‘em?”

And he is also mad that he isn't getting a dime from royalites:

You don't understand, Larry. Between us, Roy Thomas, Gerry Conway and i own 20% of "Captain Carrot and the Zoo Crew", but this ISN'T CCATZC, it's "Captain K'Rot", so none of us have received a nickel and won't. The "re-imagined" version is 100% owned by DC and Warner Bros. I don't think that this is a coincidence.
