After their popularity soared in the [[TheThirties 1930s]], the WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes franchise ventured into comics from the [[TheForties 1940s]]-[[TheFifties 1950s]] (Creator/DellComics) all the way to the modern age of comics in the [[TheNineties 1990s]] and in the 21st century (Creator/DCComics), apart from their theatrical shorts, feature films, and TV shows.

The '''Four Color''' anthology title (1930-1962) by Dell Comics spotlighted various characters to try out whether they merited additional appearances or spin-off series. WesternAnimation/PorkyPig received his first spotlight issue in 1942. The story "Porky of the Mounties" (July, 1944) by CarlBarks is considered a highlight for the character. WesternAnimation/BugsBunny received his own spotlight in 1943. Both characters continued having several issues to themselves over the following decade. WesternAnimation/SylvesterTheCatAndTweetyBird received their first spotlight issue in 1952. Followed by WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck in 1953. Petunia Pig, Elmer Fudd, Mary Jane and Sniffles also received spotlight issues in 1953, but they never "graduated" to having titles of their own. Elmer did however have several subsequent issues to himself. WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadRunner received their first spoltlight issue in 1958. Though the Road Runner (as "Beep Beep") got top billing. They were featured in several subsequent issues. WesternAnimation/SpeedyGonzales had his first and only spotlight issue in 1960.

Dell Comics eventually gave the Looney Tunes characters their own spin-offs. The '''Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies Comics''' (1941-1955) lasted for 165 issues under that name. Then was renamed to simply '''Looney Tunes''' (1955-1962) and lasted for another 81 issues. A total of 246 issues under either name. The '''Bugs Bunny''' magazine (1952-1962) lasted for 58 regular issues. Plus various holiday-themed specials (Halloween, Christmas, etc). The '''Porky Pig''' magazine (1952-1962) lasted for 57 issues. The '''Tweety and Sylvester''' magazine (1954-1962) lasted for 34 issues. The '''Daffy''' magazine (1956-1962, later renamed to '''Daffy Duck''') lasted for 27 issues. '''Beep Beep the Road Runner''' magazine (1960-1962) lasted for 11 issues.

The '''Bugs Bunny''' magazine by GoldKeyComics/Whitman lasted from 1962 to 1984. A total of 160 issues. The '''Tweety and Sylvester''' magazine by Gold Key Comics/Whitman lasted from 1963 to 1984. A total of 121 issues. The '''Daffy Duck''' magazine by Gold Key Comics/Whitman lasted from 1962 to 1984. A total of 113 issues. The '''Porky Pig''' magazine by Gold Key Comics/Whitman lasted from 1965 to 1984. A total of 108 issues. The '''Beep Beep the Road Runner''' magazine (1966-1984) by Gold Key Comics/Whitman lasted for 105 issues. The '''Yosemite Sam''' magazine from Gold Key Comics/Whitman lasted from 1970 to 1984. A total of 81 issues, though most had him co-starring with Bugs Bunny. The '''Looney Tunes''' magazine by Gold Key Comics/Whitman lasted from 1975 to 1984. A total of 47 issues.

The '''Looney Tunes Magazine''' (1989-1992), published first by DC and then by the Welsh Publishing Group, lasted for 10 issues. It was then renamed to '''Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes Magazine''', but that didn't help either the sales or the longevity of the title. The current '''Looney Tunes''' magazine by DC was launched in April, 1994. Still ongoing as of 2014, with over 200 issues published.

!!Tropes:
* BurgerFool: In DC's ''Looney Tunes'' title, Lola Bunny works for Machu Pizza, where she specializes in delivering food to some very unusual customers: AliensAndMonsters, FishPeople, gods and other mythological figures, etc.
* {{Crossover}}: Happens in the four issue "Superman & Bugs Bunny" with DC characters and Looney Tunes characters.
* DeathByCameo: Issue #75 of the DC title shows that Elmer apparently killed [[spoiler: [[WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures Buster Bunny]].]]
* DeliciousFruitPies: Even the Looney Tunes ensemble was employed to plug Hostess' confectioneries. Except for the one where [[TeamRocketWins Wile E. Coyote actually SUCCEEDS in capturing the Road Runner]] and WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck [[OutofCharacterMoment shows up to rescue him]], they generally make more sense than the {{Superhero}} ones.
* EmbarrassingMiddleName: In a [[TheReveal revelation]] that was immortalized on ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'', Wile E. Coyote seeks out his Uncle Kraft E., who revealed that the 'E' stands for "Ethelbert".
-->'''Wile E.:''' ''ETHELBERT?'' I'll...I'll be a laughingstock!\\
'''Kraft E.:''' It's ''my'' middle name, too! Why do you think I went to live on top of that mountain, away from people?
** [[WordOfGod Mark Evanier himself]] stated that he "didn't intend it as anything more than one joke on one page of one story in one issue."
* EvenTheRatsWontTouchIt: Honey Bunny's cooking. According to Bugs, "The mice in [her] house have to send out for cheese sandwiches!"
* GirlishPigtails: Petunia Pig.
* GoKartingWithBowser: In a lot of the Dell/Gold Key stories, Elmer is just a normal guy living in a neighborhood, and he and Bugs get along pretty well.
* HairDecorations: Mary Jane wears a black or red bow on her blonde hair in the comics. Also Petunia Pig wears bows on her pigtails.
* MilestoneCelebration: Issue #6 ran a story celebrating Taz's 40th birthday, and issue #38 featured a special story for Marvin the Martian's 50th birthday.
* {{Nephewism}}: Porky's nephew Cicero was a regular in the comics for decades. Bugs's nephew Clyde, a minor character from the original cartoons, was also a lot more prominent in the comics.
* RhymesOnADime: The Road Runner in the Dell/Gold Key comics. He was given a first name--Beep Beep--and three sons who spoke in rhyme as well.
* SubbingForSanta: In issue #73.
* ZettaiRyouki: Mary Jane.
