Availability: Ready to download

Collects Flaming Carrot comics #1-3. Silliness could hardly be realized so flawlessly (and any superhero who carries Pez and Fizzies in his utility belt is okay in my book). Moon goons raid a redneck picnic. An Advanced Scientific Weapon turns Martians into door-to-door salesmen.

Silliness could hardly be realized so flawlessly (and any superhero who carries Pez and Fizzies in his utility belt is okay in my book). Moon goons raid a redneck picnic. An Advanced Scientific Weapon turns Martians into door-to-door salesmen. A notorious villain grinds innocents up with a lawnmower, then goes home to eat vanilla wafers in the bathtub. No, it's not The Collected Works of F. Scott Fitzgerald, it's the mid-'80s icon of tomfoolery, the Champion of Justice, the Dreadnought of Chicanery...the Flaming Carrot. A gun in one hand, a knife in the other (and, naturally, a fiery carrot for a head), 'FC' tackles terrorist death squads, communist hordes, and road hogs from outer space in this wonderful trade reissue of FC comics #1-3, plus previously unreleased material. Cited as "more fun than a Toyota-thon tent-sale with free hot dogs," this guy throws stink bombs, climbs walls with toilet plungers, and wears scuba flippers; and his nuclear-powered pogo stick enables him to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Okay, maybe it's not as important as The Collected Works of F. Scott Fitzgerald, but seriously, what would you rather have on your bookshelf? The back blurb says it all: "Life's not worth living without banana bread, white-wall tires, and Flaming Carrot Comics!" —Edward Lee

    Welcome to the first volume of the collected Flaming Carrot comics, Man of Mystery! Mysteries abound in this volume containing the first three issues of the Flaming Carrot! Who is the Flaming Carrot? Why does he wear a giant carrot mask? Why is his head flaming? Why does this collection place issue #3 between #1 and #2 instead of after them? How... MYSTERIOUS! Not only is Flaming Carrot mysterious, he's also violent, altruistic, and a ladies' man (er... carrot) to boot! UT!

Who is the Flaming Carrot? Why does he wear a giant carrot mask? Why is his head flaming? Why does this collection place issue #3 between #1 and #2 instead of after them? How... MYSTERIOUS! Not only is Flaming Carrot mysterious, he's also violent, altruistic, and a ladies' man (er... carrot) to boot! UT! If Batman had been written by a beat poet on an ether binge, it might have come close to the lunacy within these pages. Not only does this volume contain the first three issues of one of the most bizarre (yet beloved) comic books of all time, also included are other Flaming Carrot appearances in publications like Anything Goes and Cerberus. Can you take so much MYSTERY? Sure you can.

    There's no explaining Flaming Carrot, only experiencing it. Carrot combines the charming childlike adventure of Madman with the fists-up, guns-drawn mayhem of Sam & Max (with buxom babes worthy of Al Capp), but before either existed! To call it Surrealist is, I think, charitable: there is a clear plot, FC is dependable in his strangeness and behaviour, and many characters do make return visits reflective of their previous conduct. So, not Surrealism, but truly damn strange. Burden's art is a sui There's no explaining Flaming Carrot, only experiencing it. Carrot combines the charming childlike adventure of Madman with the fists-up, guns-drawn mayhem of Sam & Max (with buxom babes worthy of Al Capp), but before either existed! To call it Surrealist is, I think, charitable: there is a clear plot, FC is dependable in his strangeness and behaviour, and many characters do make return visits reflective of their previous conduct. So, not Surrealism, but truly damn strange. Burden's art is a suitable match for the stories, as it ranges between just-decent to what-the-hell-is-that-supposed-to-be. This volume collects early stories from Cerebus, Aardvark-Vanaheim 3D, something called Anything Goes, and the first three issues of Flaming Carrot Comics. There is a new, illustrated all-text story here as well. I truly wouldn't recommend Flaming Carrot to just anyone, but it's definitely required reading for the strange of heart.

    This comic series doesn't make any sense. And that's the fun of it. If you want to turn of your braiin and take a wild ride, try the Flaming Carrot.
