Flaming Carrot Comics
The title refers to the protagonist, The Flaming Carrot. The origins issue (issue 7) states that "having read 5,000 comics in a single sitting to win a bet, this poor man suffered brain damage and appeared directly thereafter as - the Flaming Carrot!". He wore a costume which consisted of a giant carrot mask, which was continually aflame, a white shirt, and red pants. Also, he wore flippers on his feet. Most of his dialogue was disjointed, but sometimes thought provoking in a Zen Koan fashion.
The Flaming Carrot lived in Iron City, and adventured occasionally with a superhero group called Mystery Men. The story of this group was later made into a movie.
