Scooby-Doo #129 (DC – Rozum / Angelelli / Ottolini)
With school back in session, take a class in some horrific history with Professor Scoob and the gang! Plus, longing for the blockbuster days of summer movies? No worries, Scoob’s got the scoop on Snacks on a Plane and it’s deelish!
Okay, I know this is a new one for the Pullbox, but some of the best creators today did start working on off-beat comics, even ones specifically written for the under 10 crowd.
DC’s / Kids WB’s Scooby-Doo is exactly what it appears to be… good fun for kids and kid-like adults. While not necessarily having the charm of the original show that I remember watching when I was eight (then again, very little can stand up to the wonderment of the Saturday morning cartoons of the late 70’s / early 80’s), it is great fun. The book has the same classic Scooby feel with updated gags and references (Snacks on a plane :)). The book is broken into several smaller stories specifically written for younger readers and includes a preview of the new Super Friends book. If you are looking to put a comic in the hands of a youngin’ in your life, you probably aren’t going to do better than this modern update on classic.
