Plot: Scooby and the Gang get into a sticky situation before digging the dugout.

The giant bees in Scooby-Doo are just silly and inspire no false fear. Even traditional chickens Shaggy and Scooby have trouble accepting in their validity, but writer Rurik Tyler makes up for the lack with a fairplay mystery that avoids the obvious.

The dialogue is strong, and the clues are not laid out for the gang to find. Rather the overtones draw upon the villain's arrogance and despite the seeming ease in which Mystery Incorporated find the clues, the characterization paints them as master detectives.

Joe Staton and Dave Hunt easily wax upon the essence of the gang, and their attention to creating an illusion of motion astounds. Right on the front page, you swear Daphne's hair waves as she ducks. Velma looks as though she's strolling through the crime-scene on page fourteen, and a stunner on page eleven returns to the fluid Daphne engaging a trap.[1]
