Looney Tunes mega-fan Matthew Hunter (of the Misce-Looney-Ous blog) has started another worth-while project for the benefit of mankind. It’s a new site dedicated to showcasing Looney Tunes stories from classic (and some modern) Looney Tunes comics, an aspect of the Looney Tunes universe that we can all agree has been woefully neglected and under-appreciated for too long.
Hunter is highlighting the amazing work of artists including Pete Alvarado, Phil DeLara, Vivie Risto, Tom McKimson, David Alvarez, Walter Carzon, and many, many others both credited and uncredited. Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, Daffy Duck, not to mention lesser lights like Henery Hawk, Merlin the Magic Mouse and other favorites are all here, in full color scans of stories ranging from the early to mid 1940’s to the early 2000’s, from Dell, Goldkey, Whitman, and DC… from his huge personal collection and from some “donations”. Check out the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies Comics blog – with the iPad making it easier than ever to read comics online, this is a much needed resource – or at least, I think so.
