Looney Tunes #243, from DC, combines traditional characters and laughs for today’s all ages reader.

First up in this issue is ‘West, Whirled’, with Daffy Duck and Elmer Fudd, heading by train to a theme park. It’s a western theme park, but something seems dustier and gnarlier than even the Old West. Written by Ivan Cohen, and drawn by Scott Gross, this is a fun tale, with lots of far-fetched Looney adventure.

Next is ‘Neighbor Hoodoo’. Granny and Sylvester the cat are getting new neighbors. Once again (there is a Looney theme going on here,) something seems amiss with the newbies: shady and scary things start happening in the neighborhood. This story is written by Chuck Kim, with art by Omar Aranda, inked by Alberto Saichann, colors by Dave Tanguay.

In addition to the two stories, there are a few single page stories, making a good all-ages package.

I really like what the teams are doing with these time-loved characters. The stories move along sharply, the drawings are crisp, energetic and well colored. They are a fun read for a youngster who wants to start enjoying comics!

DC Comics, Looney Tunes 243, $2.99 for 21 pages of content Rated: “E for Everyone”

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
