Scrappy Doo has returned, but nobody’s really happy about it, least of all him. He says he’s only joined the colony at the Fred Herman Jones Memorial Mall because they owe him. Because he needs food and shelter for a while. Because Velma Dinkley is responsible for turning him into a part-dog/part monster freak.
But Scooby knows better, even if the others don’t see it. Velma is too wrapped up in the administration of the colony to really care. Shaggy is too wrapped up in the animosity between himself and Scrappy. And Daphne is too wrapped up in her own anger at the creatures that killed her Fred.
Veteran comic artist Pat Olliffe makes his debut on the title in this issue. Like his collaborators, he has extensive experience, though the credits at the beginning of the issue suggests – with tongue firmly planted in cheek – that he had begun to question his decision to work with Giffen and DeMatteis.
I regard this chapter in the overall story as maneuvering pieces on the board before the next big moment (be it actual battle or dramatic conflict). The back-up feature os Secret Squirrel appear to be drawing to a conclusion soon. Can’t be soon enough to suit me.
