Rozum returns to Scooby-Doo in good, nay, great spirits. He opens the book up with a seasonal short that's enhanced through Joe Staton's incredible creation of wintry atmosphere and Horacio Ottolini's use of shadows. I was getting a chill.

The story won't melt any brain cells, but it's a fun tale exhibiting good detective work and a very clever Scooby Snack involving the properties of water that Scooby sleuths in seconds.[1]

Note: a review of #140 is the same thing as a review of #103, since one is a reprint of the other.

DC Comics Scooby-Doo! #140 (March 2009) filled me with an abiding joy as I flipped through its terrific pages over the past weekend. This was a "real" comic book folks! Writer John Rozum penned all three wonderful short stories within the issue and each of them was interesting, entertaining and true to what I recall of the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon show upon which this series is based. Rozum’s partners on the first two tales are veteran penciller Joe Staton & inker Horacio Ottolini. There are no cheats within either of these stories; the reader is treated to lush, full artwork that cuts no corners. The backgrounds are fully realized, Staton's visual characterization enhances the script and even at only 8 and 6 pages in length, the two adventures have a recognizable beginning, middle and end. The third story illustrated by Robert Pope & Scott McCrae is also loads of fun, but simply not of the caliber of Staton and Ottolini’s stuff.[2]
