Cool World (1992) #1
Welcome to COOL WORLD, where men are men...and everybody else is a 'doodle.' Cool World is a world of animated beings and bizarre cartoon lands where anything is possible and everything happens, sooner or later! It's also a summer of 1992 live action and animated film from Paramount Pictures, directed by veteran animator Ralph Bakshi, and starring Kim Basinger, Gabriel Byrne and Brad Pitt. But before seeing the film, you can have an exclusive look at this unique world in DC's COOL WORLD miniseries, a prequel to the film. Frank Harris is the only flesh-and-blood human being on Cool World, living the life of a criminal mastermind. What could possess a hard case like Harris to team up with an animated goofball of a doodle like Nails the Spider? It could only be something like the 'ultimate weapon,' an item possessing the power to wipe out doodle lives...or control all of Cool World! Written by Michael Eury, with art by Stephen DeStefano, Chuck Fiala and Bill Wray.
