John Rozum, with Staton, DeCarlo and Scott McRae, in the puzzle and the final short plays with the conventions of the formula. Rozum's tales end up upending your expectations.
"Cover Story" seems to take a page from Scooby Doo II. Rozum however surprises not once but twice. His final beat is laugh out loud funny, and there are still plenty of twists within the formula to delight Scooby fans of all ages.
Staton of course has perfected his look for the gang, and even though these are of the What's New Scooby-Doo? design, he still treats the Gang as serious characters to illustrate even when they may not be behaving seriously. His timing within the panels makes Scooby-Doo a breezy read but with meaty rewards.
