Velma Dinkley talks about bats.
Now, Rozum of course is an old pro at Scooby-Doo. So, you expect nothing but the best from him, and he doesn't disappoint in "Driving Me Batty." Velma informs Shaggy and Scooby about up-to-date information on the only mammals capable of flight. He even includes proper categorizing of the beasties and recent findings on their morphology--admirably rendered by Staton and company. Bravo. A comic book that subtly educates as well as entertains. Rozum also contributes a short mystery puzzle intended to test the observation skills, and this time he put enough level of difficulty in the game to deter even adult players for a few moments. Think of it as a Wednesday New York Times Crossword Puzzle.
Rounding off the book, Sholly Fisch, Staton and Ottolini contribute three art lessons in which Scooby-Doo and Shaggy meet some fun consequences in the Warner Brothers tradition.
