I don't know what's worse: a book that lives down to my expectations and royally sucks, or a book that has issue after issue provided enjoyment only to fall flat on its metaphorical trunk. This issue of Scooby-Doo is simply not worth your time or your money.

The characterization by Rurik Tyler is fine and fitting for each member of Mystery Inc. The plot however goes Deep South or rather southeast on the very first page. A fierce looking dragon with elephant's feet comes crashing out of the woods.

Did I mention the elephant's feet? Hmmmn, now what pray tell has elephant's feet? Can the dragon possibly be an elephant?

"No!" "Yes."

On page three, Mystery Inc. observes the video capturing Tantor-Chang, yet all must have been stricken blind by the biting black fly, for not one of our sleuths upon witnessing the video shouts "Ah-Hah! Elephant's feet! It must be an elephant!"

The usually impressive Rurik Tyler builds the lack of suspense by adding more evidence to the obvious. Flies abound. Trees lie in splinters, but nobody notices the blatant gray elephant's feet beneath the costume. I know that Scooby-Doo is meant to be read by kids, but come on! This faux monster can only fool the Presidolt. [1]
