Reception

Debut scriber Terrence Griep Jr. conjures a particularly novel menace for the gang to face, and this crook is far more literate than most. Mr. Griep's poetry for this character is genuinely beautiful and fitting to the era from whence the spirit hails.

As with other Griep stories, the mystery isn't as important as the characters, and he shows Scoob and Shaggy to be actually very brave stomachs. They follow Velma down "a dark, spooky secret passage" just because they fear for her safety. While surprising, you do find that it is in keeping with their characters.

While Anthony Williams and Jeff Albrecht deftly handle the artwork, Daphne looks great, Paul Becton adds extra dimension with colors that reflect the dreaded Elf-King's lightshow and increase the cartoon's realism. [1]
