I'm sure I've said this before, but when it comes to worth for money, nothing compares to Scooby-Doo. First, you get two stories buffered by two puzzles. All the characters are bound to look and act like themselves. Comedy and mystery combine for a confection of cartoon goodness. There are absolutely no acts of betrayal or mind-wiping to be found in these pages. "Rust Rookie Riping. Rhee-Rhee-Rhee!"
Joe Staton provides a damn fine monster in the first tale with a nice twist by writer Robbie Busch to the fairplay formula. Action-packed, the mystery also creates a credible threat and deeper than expected characterization to the suspects of the crime.
