Reception

This issue would have been another perfect Scooby-Doo had Robbie Busch’s story made sense. The motive of a cleverly created ghost lacks the umph to keep the story aloft. Never the less, the Banshee is a neat update. The plane takes the place of spectral flight and makes his displacement from Scotland more believable.

Anthony Williams and Jeff Albrecht make the Banshee suitably ghoulish with a too wide grin and fire-red eyes as flight goggles. They nicely render the cast, and because the mystery involves Shaggy’s cousin, they make his appearance Shaggy-like but not his demeanor. [1]
