Reception

DC seems to be dumbing down Scooby-Doo, and that just misses the point. Kids became involved with Scooby-Doo because of the fairplay mysteries that were often kind of creepy and the friendship shared by Freddie, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and Scoob.

I do not ask for the complexity of say Raymond Chandler in Scooby-Doo mysteries, but I do want a puzzle that does not insult my intelligence. Kids would like that too. John Rozum has written some awesome issues of Scooby-Doo, but this latest collection of stories represents his worst.

The first tale visits Velma's cousin Dexter who has been framed for vandalism. Unfortunately, the clues given are telegraphed and really do not highlight the detective skills of Mystery Inc. Inspector Clouseau could have solved this one. There is some mild cogitation regarding the reason why the criminal in question would choose such an outlandish costume, but it's not really enough.
