It’s a classic first issue. It’s actually a little brainier than I expected. I thought it would be a very childish book. While funny animals do appeal primarily to kids, one must remember that there are tons of normal sane adults who love Mickey Mouse and there are some classic adult graphic novels that use animals instead of humans. Speigelman’s Maus and Crumb’s Fritz the Cat come to mind in that latter category and both are definitely not for kids!
True, some of the jokes are staler than 4 day old bagels. But some of the puns like naming a duck action star who drives a super-fast Trans Am, “Bird Rentals” are inside jokes that a more mature reader would only get.
I think Captain Carrot’s got potential.
