Apparently, that was NOT all, folks!

After a five-year gap, Warner Bros. has released Looney Tunes: Spotlight Collection Volume 8 (Warner Bros., $19.98), featuring 30 classic cartoons on two-discs. This collection includes cartoons from the 1940s through the 1960s by such cartoon pioneers as Bob Clampett, Friz Freleng, Chuck Jones and Robert McKimson. A ninth volume is planned for December, and it’s good to have this series back!

Meanwhile, everyone’s favorite feisty Canadian mutant is back in another motion comic release from Marvel Knights Animation with Wolverine Weapon X: Tomorrow Dies Today (Shout! Factory, $14.97), adapting the comic book arc by Jason Aaron and Ron Garney and featuring Deathlok.
