Reception

"Trouble in Store" takes the tone of the Scooby-Doo movie. That's certainly not a complaint. You know where I'll be March 26th. Ivan Velez's characterization of Shaggy resembles the antics of Matt Lillard's Shaggy. Artist Robert Pope with his exaggerated Shaggy body language reinforces this attitude.

Another way this second tale pushes toward the film is that for this mystery, the Gang is put in real danger. Velma in particular could have suffered from the villain's obsessive bent had Shaggy and Scooby not saved her from the cold reception.

The villain of the story exhibits Velez's thought and imagination. He considered how this villain might have plausibly concocted his illusion and came up with some plausible, fascinating cinematic tricks to accomplish the look. Robert Pope aids the writer with a potent, threatening image for the character.

Two solid puzzles for the Gang to solve, an inventive villain and a classic motive entertain with another good issue of Scooby-Doo. [1]
