It was a crossover that never should have worked, DC and Looney Tunes coming together was a truly unique team-up. Apparently, they have proven quite popular as DC has announced several new crossovers coming this summer. Set for release on August 29 for $4.99, these 48-page specials will feature a main story as well as a backup story. Check out the titles, their creative teams, and synopsis below. I for one am looking forward to Tweety and Black Canary putting the “birds” back in Birds of Prey.
