But to it’s credit, the story is much more than the meeting of two characters; it’s also a commentary on personal growth. There’s also a wee bit of anti-prejudice thrown in, though it seems a bit too heavy handed for my tastes. In this story, it seems as if everybody hates everybody else. Can’t we all just get along?
The artwork from Lopresti and Moore is very good, with crisp, clean lines that I appreciate. There is ample texture, enabling Marvin to exist as much more than a cartoon. A few peripheral characters, not so much. But there was a welcome cameo from a Looney Tunes character I’ve seen in only one cartoon. I’d always wished they’d done more with her.
Of the five DC/Looney Tunes team-ups I’ve read, this is perchance the weakest, though the pairing makes total sense. Perhaps Green Lantern would have been a better choice, though the Martian Manhunter gets the spotlight so seldom these days, I don’t mind so much.
