But Lobo is a man of principles, and he’s not about to discard a paying gig just to join the Coyote’s crusade. So he forces his latest contract, enabling Wile E. to lay his hands on potentially one the most powerful weapons in the universe.
For Looney Tunes fans, this issue features a few choice cameos and references that bring back the old days. It also comes with a back-up story told in a more kid friendly, all-ages style, courtesy of Warner Brothers Legal Department, Fly in the Ointment Division. Lobo bears a little resemblance from he guest starred on Superman the Animated Series, but not so much we have this odd mix of Chuck Jones and Bruce Timm.
It’s a fun read, and kudos to Bill Morrison for pulling it off. Figuring out a way to feature characters from such widely differing universes can’t be easy, but Morrison did very well. The main story features the artwork of Kelly Jones, which seems an odd choice, but given the story’s EC overtones, maybe not. Jones’ work has always evoked that style, without copying it too closely.
