It’s Cats Vs Birds In This Delightful Catwoman / Tweety & Sylvester Comic Special

Sometimes, the superhero world is way too serious. Characters dying left and right, politics are heavily discussed, and wars are happening. But other times, on increasingly rare moments, superhero comic books can be downright silly and fun.

Yes, that is the classic Tweety line coming out of Catwoman’s mouth

From the brilliant minds of writer Gail Simone (Wonder Woman, Birds of Prey) and artist Inaki Miranda (Catwoman, Batgirl) comes the Catwoman/Tweety & Sylvester special. This is potentially one of the best crossover event ever. Who cares about Arrowverse crossover or the Avengers when you’ve got freaking Tweety Bird and Sylvester interacting with Catwoman?!

All kidding aside, the comic looks amazing. The realistic Tweety and Sylvester are especially delightful. That grumpy look on Sylvester’s face? Classic. Here’s the synopsis of the comic from DC’s website:

In his relentless pursuit of Tweety, Sylvester suddenly finds himself with a new, human ally—Catwoman. Tweety then realizes that he’s going to need some help too, and recruits a super-hero of his own. It isn’t long before the scale of the conflict begins to get out of control and suddenly theres’s a full scale war between cats and birds that threatens to take over all of Gotham.

Sylvester and Catwoman are teaming up because they’re both cats, duh, but it looks like Tweety will be getting a team up of his own. Which bird-themed hero will be his ally? Black Canary? Hawkman? Robin??? And what will this cats vs. birds war look like? Epic is the only word that comes to mind.

Tweety Bird coming in with that burn!

This isn’t the first time DC released a crossover with Looney Tunes. Batman/Elmer Fudd was the first of the DC/Looney Tunes crossover, released June, 2017. The reception to that was so great, that they decided to make even more DC/Looney Tunes crossovers. Other than Catwoman/Tweety & Sylvester, there will also be Harley Quinn/Gossamer, The Joker/Daffy Duck, and Lex Luthor/Porky Pig.

It looks like the comics will have elements of fun and silliness that’s a mainstay of Looney Tunes but still keep the slightly dark and edgy tone of a typical DC comic. For example, that Porky Pig illustration is the stuff nightmares are made of.

All the comics are available on Comixology now, or even better, ask your local comic book store if they have the physical copies.
