Notes/trivia

Reception

Well if you haven't been checking in on the forum of late, you'll be unaware of yet another thread accusing me of all sorts of unsubstantiated crimes against The League of Fanboy Protectors of No Talent Overhyped Wunderkinds. I hate offal such as Countdown to Fasciitis Crisis of Infinite Necrotization that they like for no bloody good reason. They therefore demand that I should be sent as an enemy combatant to Gitmo or redirected to Tom Cruise for psychiatric consultation.

I present, your honor, this issue of Scooby-Doo in my defense.

On the whole, I don't actually look at the credits of anything that's on my subscription list until I've finished reading the book. Well, imagine my surprise upon seeing Chuck Dixon's name attached to my beloved Scooby-Doo. Now a cursory glance through the review archive or googling up older reviews/arguments from the usenet will identify my lack of awe for Chuck Dixon's alleged talent, but--no, bias up my sleeve--here, he ghosts up a perfect, original Scooby-Doo story.

Dixon plays with the tried and true formula of Scooby-Doo and successfully arrives at a new twist that enhances the characterization of the gang who are all on model. He also positions Daphne and Velma in the lead of the marathon of mystery solving each of which even features amusing alliteration. Joe Staton's artwork is merely the whipped cream and cherry on top of this delight. So in short, Chuck Dixon did good.[1]
