Comic Book Review: Wonder Woman / Tasmanian Devil Special #1

Aside from the obvious monetary gain, I'm not entirely sure what the point of these DC Comics and Warner Brothers cartoon character crossovers are. However, they're strangely entertaining. With Wonder Woman / Tasmanian Devil Special #1, it seems like they took two completely unrelated characters and somehow retrofitted them together. They don't really feel like they belong in the same plane of existence, but the whole concept somehow still works in a very odd way and there's still fun to be had.

Not since the twelve labors of Hercules has a Greek warrior faced as great a danger and as destructive a peril as the Tasmanian Devil! In order to save her sisters, the Princess of Themyscira must partner up with one of the deadliest beasts ever in Wonder Woman / Tasmanian Devil Special #1.

A bonus story entitled "Trojan Horseplay" is full-on zany featuring several different Looney Tunes characters mixing it up with the Wonder Woman world. What we get is a bonkers version of the Trojan War tale told in the form of rhymes and poetry delivered by the likes of Wonder Woman, Yosemite Sam, Foghorn Leghorn, Elmer Fudd, Daffy Duck, and others. It's all meant to be a fun ride geared more for kids, but still appealing to older readers just like the original Saturday morning cartoons adults grew up watching.

Wonder Woman / Tasmanian Devil Special #1 is rated "T" for Teen. It contains violence, frightening and intense scenes, and some adult humor.

Tony Bedard (Green Lantern Corps.) wrote Wonder Woman / Tasmanian Devil Special #1. Barry Kitson (Earth 2) provided art for the issue. Ben Caldwell (Batman Beyond Unlimited) illustrated the backup story. It was released on June 21st through DC Comics. The book is 48 pages long.

Wonder Woman / Tasmanian Devil Special #1 is available now in print and digital editions.

Issue #9 Rating: 🌟🌟🌟
