Scooby-Doo Team-Up #6
I never envisioned a world where my favorite DC comic would be something called Scooby-Doo Team-Up, but each issue provides fun adventure and laugh-out-loud moments.
This time, the gang is visiting the Hall of Justice, which, as Batman puts it, “seems to be” haunted. The ghosts have kidnapped Superman, which means the Super Friends need the kids to investigate while the heroes “protect people from crime and natural disasters as usual.” I love that writer Sholly Fisch bothers to come up with a plausible explanation for why these superheroes need help from a gang of teens. I also love Robin’s dry lines, particularly when commenting on Wonderdog.
Even better is what they do with the kids — they dress them up as those well-known junior super heroes, Wendy, Marvel, Zan, and Jayna. The art by Dario Brizuela is wonderful, portraying these characters in classic fashion, instantly recognizable to young and old. There’s a surprise guest star that I was thrilled to see, and a plot full of imagination that continues with exciting revelations. Every page turn was an enjoyable new surprise, and it makes me so happy to be able to laugh so much while I’m reading an action comic.
This is a great week for DC comics for all-ages readers, with it also seeing the release of Tiny Titans: Return to the Treehouse #4, with the little heroes voyaging to Atlantis for lots of water fun, and Batman ’66 Meets the Green Hornet #4, marred only by the inclusion of inappropriate Dynamite title ads.
