	DC did a LT/MM miniseries a few years ago.  The new series was
announced in the trades a few weeks ago.  Look in DC Direct Currents for
more info.
	The PPotM is a good idea.  I remember reading LT/MM comic book
stories, and they weren't too bad (aside from the Road Runner being male,
having kids, and talking, and Honey Bunny, blech, it ruins the entire
homosexual humor of Bugs).  I wonder what other gems there are?  If I
remember correctly, Porky was given the role of an adventurer who didn't
want the job.
