What Now?

(Click img to view full size!)

Working on a project for my "Digital Design Issues in Sequential Art" grad class, which calls for us to take a "retro" character, or a character that "doesn't get much love," and put a new or modern spin on them.

I chose Wile E. Coyote/Road Runner from the Looney Tunes. I grew up on all of the Looney Tunes cast and episodes... thanks Dad! :)

My original idea path for the project was doing a sort of "role reversal." Wile E. Coyote is a self-proclaimed "SUPERgenius," and yet he can never seem to capture the Road Runner. He is somehow thwarted or outsmarted every time. His hunger and his desire is his driving motivator to continually, no matter how many times he has to fail, chase the Road Runner.

So, what happens when the Road Runner is taken out of the picture? What motivates Wile E. Coyote now?
More importantly, will ACME Corp. go bankrupt?
