The Looney One
DC launch their summer “event” (seems to be the continuation of Snyder's Batman run that DC saw an event in), Looney Tunes and the DCU cross over, MJ keeps interviewing for a superhero job, … Oh, yes, there's still a Spawn variant coming out (Manifest Destiny #29). Light week for me, but there's some interesting stuff …
Crazy Crossovers of the Week
It's time for the Looney Tunes to crossover with the DC universe once again. For anyone keeping track, we just had the Hanna-Barbera specials and don't forget the ongoing Scooby Doo Team-Up. Can a Hanna-Barbera / Scooby Doo / Looney Tunes / DC crossover be far behind? Something a bit like Roger Rabbit? Marvel, what are you waiting for? Disney / Star Wars / Marvel crossover now!!!
This week's specials' cartoony covers are so much better than the serious ones …

Revamp of the Week
I am heavily getting into Batman Silver Age these days, so seeing this cover made me really happy. The Terrible Trio's back, and even if they are too young (how much scarier is an adult wearing a suit and tie instead?), it might be worth a look!

Swipes of the Week
Two cool swipes this week … Old Man Logan #25 (beginning of the Brisson / Deodato run) pits Old Man Logan versus the Maestro and, of course, has to pay homage to Hulk #181. Tributes to 181 seem to do really well, so watch out for that. If you are wondering why Deodato didn't go for that homage is because he had already done if for one of the Secret Wars #1 variants. I guess Marvel could have re-used it and people wouldn't have noticed …
|Old Man Logan #25 Tom Grummett 1:10 Variant||Secret Wars #1 Mike Deodato Comic Con Box Exclusive|
And if you think I am not going to mention the PotA / GL homage variant, you don't know me very well. Here it is in all its 80's glory …
|Planet of the Apes / Green Lantern #5 Paul Rivoche 1:20 Variant||Green Lantern #127|
That's it for this week. What would you buy? There can be only one!
