Duck Dodgers comics

I know many readers of this blog have some not-so-nice things to say about "Duck Dodgers", the TV series based on Chuck Jones' classic short. The show had its flaws, but it also had some excellent voice work by Joe Alaskey and Bob Bergen, and when it was good, it was REALLY good. The show was fairly short-lived on Cartoon Network. It and its remaining episodes that CN never aired (there were around 30 in all) were shoved off to Boomerang. Some of those later episodes were, as it turns out, better than what Cartoon Network offered us.

But there was another aspect of "Duck Dodgers". It spawned a series of comic book stories in DC's "Looney Tunes" series, and they ran for a good two years. I'm sure it was originally intended as a standalone series, but DC probably figured it was easier to use the stories in the flagship LT book. These stories turned out to be better than most of the TV episodes, and this one, from January 2005, was a highlight. Art by Neal Sternecky, story by Earl Kress. See what YOU think.
