I've asked this before, and I'll ask it again. Why cannot more comics be more like Scooby-Doo? The first mystery surpasses the usual yet enjoyable puzzles by providing numerous suspects--each possessing a motive to wear ghastly garb.
Writer Brett Lewis keeps the gang in perfect character, and you can hear the cast's voices jinkies-ing. Freddie seems stalwart. Velma appears eager, and the delectable Daphne motivates Shaggy and Scooby through a combination of name-calling "Chickens" and fowl handling. Shaggy and Scoob of course are along for the Mystery Machine ride only to seek snack foods in great quantities. Joe Staton and Dave Hunt create an illusion of movement, a flow of hair that gives the book a fluid visual quality. They do however botch one panel. Must have been distracted.
