Lobo Road Runner

Going out of the normal comfort range for this one, to the farthest depths of space, and the vastness of the American desert...., to feature a battle royale....

...between the "Main Man", Lobo, an invincible, unkillable bounty hunter with a penchant for weaponized mayhem, and the "Accelleratii Incredibus" Road Runner, a super fast inhabitant of the highways with little regard for speed limits (or even the laws of nature and physics), with covers by Kelley Jones and Bill Morrison from August, 2017.

For this DC/Looney Tunes team up, at the behest of scientists at an Area 52 like lab, Wile E. Coyote (the Road Runner's usual nemesis, user of ACME weapons) approaches Lobo to hire him to get the Road Runner, which causes the space thug to come to Earth to track the fast running beast, yet, not unlike Wile E. Coyote, this weaponized Czarnian falls prey to the running jokes and speed tricks of the Road Runner, in the main story by Bill Morrison and Kelley Jones.  As a back-up, there are even more pranks by Road Runner on Lobo (whose failure with weapons against the bird is oddly similar to Wile E. Coyote, making this not so odd a book), in an animated style, with Bill Morrison handling both the writing and art.
