"Looney Tunes" (DC) # 53, June 1999: "The Postman Always Brings Mice"
Here's one of my favorite Looney Tunes comic stories of all time. It boasts some of the best looking drawings of Sylvester and Tweety you'll ever see, by the inimitable David Alvarez. The story by Sean Carolan and Jennifer Moore is well-timed, cleverly plotted and loaded with funny slapstick. What a boffo idea: a mouse of the month club! I understand the Western stories of old are the stuff most of you readers want to see most, but DC stories like this one are the reason I feel the need to include them as well.
