"Shell-Shocked" features the always welcome return of Karen Matchette who draws a perfectly valid interpretation of the Gang without losing her own personal style. The lady also displays a flair for natural settings, where this mystery plays out, and flora and fauna.
The mystery itself once again relies on the fairplay formula of Scooby-Doo, and Frank Strom introduces some novelty in that real-estate while being the main goal of the crooks behind the creature, it is not the property that's important. Gamera would be most pleased with this story.
