“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?”
A Power Rangers convention probably isn’t something we’d typically cover here, but fans of comic creator Scott Shaw! should dig this. Shaw! has created the above artwork, which is one of the prints given to attendees at this weekend’s Power Morphicon, the Official Power Rangers convention. Shaw! will also be there to sign the prints.
Power Morphicon kicks off tomorrow in Pasadena, Calif.
