Reception

In the "Haunted Half-Pipe" Robbie Busch reveals that the Street Angel isn't the only female hero who's bitchin' on the board. As you may have gathered from the title, Mystery Inc. investigates an alleged haunting at a skateboarding exhibition.

Perhaps the most winning thing about the tale is Daphne's previously undisclosed skill. I always felt that there was more to Daphne than met the eye. Daphne Blake's ability on wheels does not merely serve as decoration. Her talent provides a vital clue and ties in with her history with those subject to the haunting.

Paris Cullins provides on-model animated artwork the tale, but his use of silhouettes just seems lazy rather than stylish. This technique especially damages the plausibility of Daphne's stunt riding in one particular scene. By using the silhouttes, the reader has no idea what Daphne and our specter are doing on the boards as they loop the ramp, and given the sport requires such intricate timing and positioning, using one's imagination simply is not sufficient.[1]
