Story #2 is a two-page theatrical feature starring Daffy Duck and Foghorn Leghorn. I must say I’m VERY disappointed, given that this same story ran only two issues ago. Which makes me think that Ye Editor(s) are getting a wee bit lazy – or desperate – to fill pages. Number two indeed.
The Road Runner and Coyote round out the issue, with a tale long on sight gags and short on dialogue – much like the actual cartoons. Unfortunately, the slapstick doesn’t translate all that well to the printed page. It’s almost as if some took rejected storyboards and dropped them onto the page. Lots of sound effects too. I haven’t seen this much onomatopoeia since before Don Martin passed away.
I usually enjoy all-ages books, but this title is so all-ages, it’s reminiscent of the Harvey comics of the 1960s. There is no price point on the cover, but anything over $1 is perhaps too much.
