Reception

I was getting a little worried about the quality of storytelling in Scooby-Doo. This issue sends a wave of relief by giving fans two delicious Scooby Snacks by Frank Strom and Anthony Williams.

Both stories thread the same needle. The keyword is beauty, kiddies. In the first story, a very shockingly drawn and fascinating faux monster stalks a pageant for motives all its own.

The method of the "monster's" attack acknowledges myth and inventively proves to be a soggy impediment for Mystery Inc. who look quite fit under the pencils, inks and colors of Williams, Davis and Becton. The consequences of the attacks allow for the subversion of Scooby-Doo formula without uncharacteristic action, and I can easily see the ending actually happening.[1]
