Reception

As I write this, Scooby-Doo enters a new era of cartoon history in the WB's What's New Scooby-Doo? The comic book continues to brighten my day, and Rao, what a film! It's a great time to be a Scooby-Doo fan.

In the first story, Scott Cunningham comes up with a plausible means to excuse the unwanted appearance of a demon. The rationale behind the crime makes sense and is quite the classic. The means through which the crime is carried out is downright mean and gives the story a nice edge that sets it apart from previous Scooby snacks. Speaking of snacks, Shaggy's and Scooby's dilemma is inspired and hilarious.

Anthony Williams and Jeff Albrecht with Paul Becton keep the cast on-model and this time around emphasize drama rather than humor apart from one scene where the gang don extremely poor disguises to dupe the man or woman behind the demon manifestation. Throughout the book , the design of the Native American owner of the spa is consistently striking. Tall and powerful with a quiet grace, she should be the model if ever there's to be another Isis cartoon. Heck, if drivel like He-Man and the Thundercats can come back, why not something as rewarding and enjoyable as Isis?[1]
