In a way Scooby-Doo and the gang defend the monsters by
revealing the criminals that exploit them in their schemes, and Dan
Slott's mystery breathes surprising life into that old formula with a
perplexing whodunit that left your reviewer bamboozled. Joe Staton
with Andrew Pepoy of the weird Simon and Ajax strip enhance the clue finding with dead ringers of the gang, and caricatures of some of the famous involved in monster filmdom.
In the second story, Chris Duffy with the Rube Goldberg genius
of Tim Harkins remind readers of all those brilliantly laid traps that Scoob and Shaggy botched. Their choice for ghosts inspires
chuckles, and of course, we relish those immortal lines "I would have
gotten away with it if it wasn't for those__________ kids." Patricia
Mulvihill once more treats the eye with a pastel background giving
the gang a Hanna-Barbera cel look, and editor Bronwyn Taggart ends the issue with another informative essay. For kids of all ages.
