Reception

Vito Delsante's "Seaside Frights" seems obvious, but Delsante treats his audience instead to a fairplay mystery in which the gang searches for and finds clues as well as a motive for the crime. Readers can play along or simply watch Delsante's on model characterization of Scooby-Doo and Mystery Inc.

Joe Staton, Horacio Ottolini and Heroic Age make this mystery easy on the eyes and a splendid animated romp. Delsante adds a genuinely fun twist that fits with the personality of cast, and Staton accomplishes the timing needed to make the joke work.[1]
