More bang for your buck, as this issue features four scenarios, though two of them are rather brief. Foghorn Leghorn stars in “Baa-Baa Boo-Boo,” while Marvin the Martian attempts a take-over of Earth which ends up being scratched due to that old Star Trek chestnut, “transporter malfunction.”


But in the two primary stories, Daffy Duck runs amuck against Porky Pig and Elmer Fudd, individually. First, Porky joins Daffy’s gym, only to suffer a level of physical abuse only cartoon characters can survive. But in the end, Porky has his revenge. However, the shoe is on the other foot when Daffy invades Elmer Fudd’s home impairment show. Power tools (from Acme, no less) and Looney Tunes could be a lethal combination, were it not for the physics of the animated world.


One thing I especially enjoy about the Looney Tunes comic is the occasional appearance by D-list characters. Last issue featured cowboy villain Nasty Canasta; this issue features a cameo by wrestler known simply as “the Crusher.” To quote Bugs Bunny, “Why Crusher, it’s good to see ya.” I look forward to more, especially if Pete Puma shows up in a future issue.


If I have a problem with all-ages books such as Looney Tunes and Scooby-Doo, it’s the price point. Personally, I feel it’s a bit high for an all-ages book, but the cost of printing doesn’t vary from one title to another. I would prefer to see all-ages books at a lower cost, and more availability at convenience stores and supermarkets, where they can catch the eye of smaller children.


Rating: 7/10
