Superman & Bugs Bunny #2
DC Comics (August, 2000)“The Wast Son Of Kwypton!” WRITER: Mark Evanier LAYOUTS: Joe Staton FINISHERS: Tom Palmer & Mike DeCarlo COLORIST: Trish Mulhill SEPARATIONS: Digital Chameleon LETTERER: Phil Felix EDITOR: Joe Cavalieri
Flash has a run-in with the Road Runner and Wile E. Kyle Rayner is tricked by Marvin The Martian. Looney Tunes are appearing and disappearing all over the place but Mxyzptlk and Do-Do are showing signs of not getting along. That won’t stop them from transferring Superman’s powers to Elmer Fudd just as the Toyman goes after the Metropolis Armory and has a gun that might spell the end of Elmer and Bugs. Then the pranksters point their attention to Batman and Daffy.
What they got right: It’s kind of funny watching the heroes get all confused about the cartoon characters showing up, and then watching Do-Do prank Mxyzptlk. How often does Mxy get pranked?
What they got wrong: How does Kyle, a cartoonist, not recognize Marvin but Aquaman immediately recognize Yosemite Sam?
Recommendation: Two issues in and I’m amused. I’m hoping the story goes somewhere in the next issue. (I haven’t read this since it came out.)
