Icy Reception is a story in Scooby-Doo! #67 by DC Comics.


The gang go to Russia to investigate the ghostly sightings of Father Frost who is haunting a young figure skater. The skater has recently fired her Russian coach and hired an American, which has the Russian Government Skating Federation very upset. The list of suspects is long and includes a rival skater, her coach and the head of the Federation. Velma learns that the ghostly sightings are nothing more than projections as Shaggy and Scooby accidentally catch Father Frost, who turns out to be the former skating coach who was fired.

In Scooby-Doo's "Icy Reception," Frank Strom finds mystery in the skating world. The ghosts here are based here on Russian folk tales as well as contemporary heroes. Mystery Inc. fresh from their "Dragon's Eye" stay in sharp character while solving this particular dilemma.

The mystery is not fairplay, but the unique backdrop and the innocent insights into the characterization nicely makeup for the lack of any real clues to uncover the man behind the mask.

Anthony Williams and Jeff Albrecht along with the ever reliable palette of Paul Becton take several departures from the Hanna-Barbera (WB) models, but they still offer valid interpretations of the gang. [1]
