Two outstanding stories split this issue of Scooby-Doo. In the first, the Gang go to a punk rock musical to investigate a haunting. Vito Delsante and Mick Purpura turn the story into a musical. Not an easy thing to do when the comic book is actually a mute object. The writers create melody in the dialogue and include refrains leading to the numbers.

As to the mystery, Delsante and Purpura give the readers plenty of suspects, and hide the culprit well enough. The ghoul reveals himself in the denouement, and they add a novel twist to the typical curse spat by all the frauds the gang have uncovered.

Tim Levins and Dan Davis dramatize Mystery Inc. in a boisterous form that suits the subject matter. They also create some imaginative designs for the punk players of the opera, and the on model Shaggy, Scooby, Fred, Daphne and Velma investigate fully dressed sets that help sell the cadence. [1]
