I wish this book had received more promotion; I hadn't heard about it until browsing new books on this site. I decided to give it a shot and, wow, am I glad I did! What a timely, relevant comic. I dare you to read this and not have a strong reaction. The writing and art are also both top-notch. I'll be adding this to my pull list, without hesitation.

I have been looking forward to this all year and I wasn't disappointed. King writes such a tortured Elmer Fudd and re-imagines the Looney Tunes cast in a realistic, gritty setting. The second story was just as good but is more Looney Tunes show inspired. Both stories are fantastic and showcases Tom King's range as a writer.

I wasn't really looking forward to this; this kind of crossover just isn't a thing that gets my attention. Even though I didn't pre-order, the manager at my LCS set a copy aside for me, since he knows I read everything from Tom King. Boy, am I glad I ended up with a copy of this! What a great, dark story. And Lee Weeks art is as stellar as always.
