Rascal Raccoon’s Raging Revenge is awesome, will be a film

Rascal Raccoon’s Raging Revenge is a graphic novel that looks at what would happen if Wile E. Coyote did catch the Road Runner and killed him. (Yes, he caught him in that one cartoon where he was tiny…) Of course, we can’t be murdering Merry Melodies characters, so instead it’s Rascal Raccoon and Jumpin’ Jackalope. Rascal is one of the Meanies, who try to take down those no-good do-gooders, the Toonies, in the cartoon setting of Toonie Terrace. And Rascal succeeds, killing Jumpin’ unexpectedly when Jumpin’ fails to revive after being ran over. He’s a hero, until he realizes his life is now empty…and he must get Jumpin’ back! Thus he has to take on the animator who created them…then things get weird….

The story is cool, and now Warner Brothers has optioned the screenrights, with Matt Fogel writing and Todd Strauss-Schulson (A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas) directing. Brendan Hay (writing) and Justin Wagner (art) created the original story. The best part is WB got the rights, when the whole thing is loosely based on their cartoons!
