Nostalgia Corner:
Scooby Apocalypse
The second in the Hanna Barbara re-imaginings and relaunches, Scooby Apocalypse introduces us to Velma the secret corporation scientist, Shaggy the hipster dog trainer, Fred & Daphne the late night TV crew, and the emoji savvy Scooby Doo. There are some really cool ideas here and the art is vibrant and fun, but I just couldn't get into it. They just aren't the characters I knew and loved. This issue is written by Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis with art by Howard Porter, colors by Hi-Fi, and letters by Nick J. Nap. (starts at 32m28s)
