happens this issue, though it may present more questions than answers, I’m
afraid. Scooby is zapped by an extra jolt electricity, amping his implant up to
11. His former speech impediment is now replaced with five words where one will
do. How long his intellectual boost will last remains to be seen.
Daphne learns a monster resembling Fred has been seen ‘round these parts, and
she’s determined to go find him. Scooby’s determined to stop her, but Scrappy
has other ideas. Like a dog chasing a car, Daphne’s not sure what she’ll do
once she finds the un-dead Fred. Kiss him or kill him, one or the other, I
Scrappy seems to have a secret or two of his own that he’s not yet willing to
share. Which is fine with me, because this reformed Scrappy has never been to
my liking. Scrappy Doo has been the Cousin Oliver of the cartoon world for
decades, and there’s no washing off that kind of stink.
DC has finally laid the interminable Secret Squirrel back-up to rest. It ran
about 10 issues too long, and has now been replaced by Atom Ant. He’s up for
membership in the JLA, if he can get his monstrous ego out of the way. Joining
him is a call back from the Bronze Age Green Lantern era. At first I thought it
was a Starro the Conqueror reference, but color me surprised. Stay tuned.
