Wizard Magazine Captain Carrot April Fool's Article (May 2004)
The Teen Titans story, was of course, a much truncated version of what is outlined in the article below. I really wish that they would have made THIS series, instead of the small couple of pages we ended up with. This series would have been fantastic, and I would have loved to see the Swamp Thing team up with the Zoo Crew. I think it would have been cool if they brought back the Zoo Crew's swampy villain Mudd from issue #4 of Captain Carrot and His Amazing Zoo Crew (June 1982), to go up against Swamp Thing. Alas, it was not to be. Just another cruel April Fool's joke on the part of Wizard Magazine.
I hate April Fool's unless I'm the one playing the jokes.
Enjoy the article, and thanks to Shag Matthews from over at Firestorm Fan for bringing this the thing to my attention way back when. Yes, it took me this long to track it down, but I didn't forget.
Oh, and before I forget. The issue number of Wizard for this article is #151. Now go read it, enjoy it, and wish longingly for good things that never happened.
Keep on Crewzin', folks!
