Reception

Chuck Dixon strikes again. Granted, he keeps the gang in character which admittedly surprised me. The dialogue he writes for them fits the voices I grew up with while watching the show, and the central premise of the plot actually is inventive. However, the mystery is easy to solve and relies on not one but three clichés. Futhermore, it seems to break the tried and tested formula of there being no ghosts in the world of Scooby-Doo. Still, for Chuck Dixon this brief mystery is the equivalent of Shakespeare.

Joe Staton's artwork doesn't get the attention it deserves from Mike DeCarlo. Although, Daphne gets quite a bit of the spotlight as she bids on a famous actor's make-up kit. [1]
