    Bob Burden Flaming Carrot Comics Ashcan #1 Cover Original Art (1983). Ut-ut! The cover of 1984's Flaming Carrot Comics #1 from Aardvark-Vanaheim looks very similar to this art. That's because this was the cover of the ashcan that Bob Burden published before Dave Sim picked him up. The ashcan version contained the story "Road Hogs From Outer Space" as the cover would imply. It may have been published by Kilian Barracks, who published the very first Flaming Carrot Comics issue in 1981, but that is unclear. This great image is produced in ink and Zipatone over graphite on Bristol board with a large image area of 15" x 22". It is signed by Bob Burden in the bottom right margin. There is some corner damage, wrinkles on the bottom left corner margin, and over all tanning, otherwise in Excellent condition.
