DC has provided ComicBook.com with an exclusive preview of Martian Manhunter/Marvin the Martian Special #1, from writers Frank Barbiere and Steve Orlando with art by Aaron Lopresti and Jerome K. Moore.
The comic, out next Wednesday, also features a backup story from writer Jim Fanning and artist John Loter.
It's one of a handful of crossover one-shots hitting the stands throughout June from DC, with superheroes teaming up with, or even fighting, characters from the Looney Tunes cartoons.
Since each of the two universes features a prominent Martian, this one seemed like a no-brainer.
It isn't unheard-of for the Warner Bros.-owned DC characters to interact in various ways with Warner Animation's Looney Tunes world...but generally, it's just that: they're taking the party TO Earth-Looney Tunes, so to speak, and existed on their terms. Here, it appears the Looney Tunes characters are being brought...if not to the DC Universe itself, then to a world not unlike the ones being fashioned in DC's Hanna-Barbera adaptations like The Flintstones and Future Quest.
