The first story is “Out of Control,” in which the Acme Corporation gives one of its best customers a universal remote. It enables Wile E. Coyote to fast-forward, reverse and pause the Road Runner scenarios, but in so doing, the sequences became garbled, and I quickly lost interest. Story #2 is a prehistoric look at the Coyote/Road Runner dynamic.
“What’s My Neurosis?” features a handful of the Looney Tunes characters being psycho-analyzed, only for the shrink to lose his own marbles. Finally, there is another Road Runner installment entitled “Zip Drive.” It’s another silent installment that might have worked better in film.
I don’t expect much from all-ages books, but I do expect the creators to try. Here, it seemed as if they were striving for quantity over quality. It’s a shame, because with names like Derek Fridolfs, Sholly Fisch and Mike DeCarlo, I expected better. But even in high-profile titles like Superman or Spider-Man, not every issue is a winner.
