    Again, Great stories, Great art, and always, the lighter side of Saturday morning cartoons that an older generation yearns for. This issue was light hearted and provides some old standbys for delivering the laughs! And this cover art looks great! Young kids should get this and read with their parents and grandparents.

    I love theobscure, and the Looney Tunes have a broader range of characters than mostpeople realize. I enjoy seeing them given screen time. The latest issue beginswith appearances by Miss Prissy, Wicked Wanda and others. Read Full Review

    The latest issue of DC's Looney Tunes is headlined by Bugs Bunny in a "Jack and the Beanstalk" parody. And if that sounds familiar, it's because the show did it too with "Beanstalk Bunny" way back in the day. Unfortunately, this version doesn't feature Daffy Duck or Elmer Fudd as The Giant, and it's drained of most of its comedic timing as a result. Read Full Review

    That's fine if that the reason why #248 was toned down, but Looney Toons is also known for its “Slapstick” comedy which means it involves very exaggerated, sometimes violent actions, like a pie in the face. No Slapstick here though. I know it can work, you know how I know? Back in August 2017 DC/Warner put out a crossover title Batman/Elmer Fudd that sold out and went to second print. So maybe they should put out more of that, cut the writers some slack, and give us less of whatever #248 was it isn't that it was terrible it's that it could be so much more. Read Full Review

    The first story feels like a bit of a retread of an already existing Bugs Bunny short that parodies Jack and the Beanstalk, but the art is so spot on and it is still enjoyable for what it is.

    The second story reeks of modern writing and doesn't deliver a satisfying short.

    The third has the perfect duo of Insurance Salesman Daffy and the talking Super Genius Mud (aka Wile E. Coyote) and it is actually incredible that these two have never met in a short before, the concept of Wile E. Coyote needing insurance is brilliant. Although, this story is not my ideal vision of this pair, it still worked and was my favourite of the three.
