BONUS REVIEW by "Doc" Schaefer


While perhaps done better than the DC/Hanna Barbera crossovers, these specials still seem to be missing something. The idea of having the same basic storyline interpreted from both the DC angle and then from the Looney Tunes angle is clever and does highlight the differences in perception. And Marvin's look in the DC Universe is really well done. But both of these stories deal with learning a life lesson and lack that pointless destruction and well worn classic comedic wackiness. Had this simply been an issue of the Martian Manhunter with a guest appearance by a multiverse martian who just happened to look like Marvin, I think it might have worked better and I would be right now praising the issue for remembering past comic martians instead of wishing I had gotten more looneyness as promised by the Bugs Bunny Seal.

I give it 7 out of 10 Grahams
