Well, this was surprising. Tom King's clever script immerses us in the world of Porky's bar, and introduces us to a group of lowlives resembling the Warner Bros gang. He cleverly interjects pieces of dialogue from the cartoon, a wink to all of us who watched Loony Tunes as kids. The story is serious enough to be very interesting, though, and Lee Weeks does a great job with the art; there is a dark more

I had no doubts this will be good. But I definitely didn't expect it to be THIS good. Tom King once again shows his incredible talent and Lee Weeks' art is perfect for this story. The backup story was great and funny as well, which felt like right from the classic episodes of the Looney Tunes. When I think about it, issues like this is why I read comics.

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.
