The next mystery by Barney Topper is painful to read. It's like a spine-tingler for stupid children. Did anybody inform Mr. Topper that sometimes adults enjoy a good Scooby-Doo puzzler? Well, folks, we've got haunted fashion here, and really, can it get any sillier? I suppose you can create a story where Joel Schumacher is haunted by leathery nipples, but still. The second cartoon offers a dearth of entertainment value.
Dan DeCarlo, the creator of Josie and the Pussycats, seems extremely bored with Mr. Topper's story. It's not his best work and only picks up when Ashley Stunn--a terrible pun--makes an appearance. Mr. DeCarlo has a talent for drawing young women in a cartoon style that's simply unparalleled.
