- Hot Time in the Temple Tonight is a remake of this same story with different art.
The second story, by Frank Strom, benefits from a stronger script and a good employment of the Gang's experience. They've solved mysteries so often that they can pretty much deduce who just may be the culprit after they meet the cast. The artwork by Leo Batic and Horacio Ottolini imagines some impressive Aztec Warrior ghosts and as well creates myriad caricatures for the suspects. The story also gains a few steps by incorporating a puzzle into the plot.
John Rozum fills the remainder of the pages with a cute puzzle gag and information about a friendly legendary monster as told by Velma. Joe Staton illustrates the dreamy collage and easily outshines all the other stories. This is not meant to suggest the art in two main tales are bad. Joe Staton simply has a way about his artwork that's tough to beat and impossible to duplicate. Heroic Age must be commended for the unusual pastel palette that enhances the mood.
