SCOOBY APOCALYPSE #1

(W) Keith Giffen, J.M. DeMatties (A) Hank Porter (CA) Jim Lee

Those meddling kids-Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy, and their dog, Scooby-Doo-get more ghost-debunking than they bargained for when faced with a fundamental change in their world. The apocalypse has happened. Old rules about logic no longer apply. The creatures of the night are among us, and the crew of the Magical Mystery Machine has to fight to survive-because in the apocalyptic badlands of the near-future, the horrors are real!

This new monthly series takes Scooby and the gang to a whole new level and features character designs by comics superstar Jim Lee!

Item Code: MAR160168 In Shops: 5/25/2016 SRP: $3.99

I'm getting this for sure, don't see the harm as regular scooby doo series is still printing so this isn't replacing it.

I kind of like the idea, but the way they look still bothers me.

Wait, the writing is split with one person doing the story/breakdowns, and another doing just the dialogue and....more dialogue?? That sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.

Why do I get the feeling that "Daphne's show" is actually subtext for this franchise in general and the writer is expressing his opinion towards it?

Overall this looks like the monsterous hybrid of the 90s and today's hipster culture and just awful. Definitely wont read it.

Looks pretty cool. I've never been excited for anything Scooby-Doo until now.

@teerack: no. It's non canon

@darkdetective27: Daphne did have her own mystery show in the eighties and Scooby Doo on Zombie Island. It's most likely a refrences to that

I like updating as much as the next guy, but... this looks like an atrocity. And I still think Daphne looks too much like Caitlin Fairchild.

My wife is the scooby reader in my house...I'll get her this first issue, but she isn't overly optimistic.

Well that is a huge mistake. I can't think of a better DC title then Mystery Inc. Team Up!
