LOONEY-TUNES-248.jpg
It’s not often Bugs Bunny – the flagship character of the Looney Tunes – gets a starring role in the lead story. But that’s the nature of a good leading man: allowing the supporting characters to do their jobs.


Bugs finds himself at the market, running afoul of Black Jacque Shellacque. One beanstalk later, they find themselves in the castle of a lonely and dim-witted giant, who no doubt would love a pet bunny rabbit – to hold and pet and name George.


Story #2 is a riff on the Three Little Pigs story, featuring Porky (of course) as well as seldom-seen Petunia, with Charley Dog as a stand-in for the Big Bad Wolf. Later, it’s a return to the A-list, with Daffy Duck and Wile E. Coyote in “Mighty Insure of Himself.”


I love the obscure, and the Looney Tunes have a broader range of characters than most people realize. I enjoy seeing them given screen time. The latest issue begins with appearances by Miss Prissy, Wicked Wanda and others.


Rating: 6/10
