I loved this book as a kid, and now I'm reading it with my 5 year old daughter and catching all of the layered jokes I didn't get at the age of 12. It's a great satire of super hero books as well as being a great super hero book on its own.

HASH(0xa01dd54c) out of 5 stars Captain Carrot is perfect for children of all ages Sept. 18 2014
By George Kaplan - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
"Captain Carrot and his Amazing Zoo Crew" is a perfect book to use in order to introduce younger children to DC Comics, and to superheroes in general. The art is cartoony and appealing, the scripts filled with jokes and painful puns that kids will adore, and the stories themselves are straightforward, imaginative, and totally eschew the darker, violent, "grim and gritty" approach to superheroes that DC has relied on to its detriment for far too long.

Children and the young at heart will love this volume.

HASH(0xa03d9474) out of 5 stars most people think funny animal superheroes would be awful Sept. 30 2014
By Mark Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
now, most people think funny animal superheroes would be awful. but this series was an exception. from the very beginning, it just had fun. captain carrot, pig iron, alley kat abra, yankee poodle, rubberduck, and fastback (and later little cheese) were not rip-offs of the justice league (that came later, with the justa lotta animals), but originals and all interesting. included in this collection, beside the entire original run, was the superb and underrated mini series "the oz-wonderland war" using the original characters based on those books (even emulating the original art styles from the books).

HASH(0xa0452984) out of 5 stars Zoo Crew rules Dec 4 2014
By Juan Carrillo - Published on Amazon.com
have always loved the zoo crew, however I always had a bad time trying to put the series back together, because most issues U just could not get. Now if your a fan the way I am, this is for u, you will give u the start of the series with superman, The origin of each hero and how there powers wk. You have the Just alot of animals story line, when Little cheese joins the team, I mean let's just say this is a great gift idea for a comic fan who has everything.
HASH(0xa03f448c) out of 5 stars The Oz-Wonderland War is fantastic. Nov. 28 2014
By Mark Bailey - Published on Amazon.com
While the majority of the issues are geared towards kids, the Oz-Wonderland War is fantastic and makes this collection worth buying. In the 3 issue miniseries the artists do a great job of imitating the original illustrations of the Oz series and Wonderland books into the standard art of Captain Carrot. It also features the return of Hoppy, the Shazam Bunny.

Humorous even in black and white form with ashcan paper- so cartoonish in a good way you might be tempted to color it in yourself. (a bit that is- around all the excess black ink) It's a fun light hearted read.
