Story #2 is the tried and true haunted theater chestnut, as zombies invade a production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I’m no fan of zombies, and adding Shakespeare into the mix could only be an improvement.
Sanwiched between the two stories is another of Velma’s Monsters of the World. This time it’s a trip down to the Carolina Lowcountry (my stomping grounds), where the legend of the plat eye originates. I am uncertain how much veracity there is to the legend as presented by Ms. Dinkly. It seems like a ploy for readers to send in monster drawings in the hopes of being published. But, then again, what’s the harm?
Artwork if typical cartoon styling, with stock poses and figure drawing we’ve come to expect from the Scooby Doo franchise. I must admit, it was one of the high points of James Gunn’s live action movies some years back. I appreciate someone who respects the source material.
