Review: Scooby-Doo Team-Up #10 (digital)

Scooby-Doo Team Up 009Title: Scooby-Doo Team-Up #10 (digital)

Publisher: DC Comics (digital)

Cost: $0.99

Storytellers: Sholly Fisch (writer) with Dario Brizuela (artist)

Picking up from the end of the last issue, a giant cyclops attacks Amazon Island. While Wonder Woman and the other Amazons try to fight the creature, Shaggy gets scared and accidentally activates the Invisible Jet, which crashes into the cyclops and knocks it out. After Wonder Woman stops Shaggy from escaping the Jet and stepping foot on Amazon Island, they realize that the cyclops is gone, disappeared without a trace. So that the men of Mystery Incorporated don’t have to remain cooped up in the Invisible Jet, Wonder Woman get Fred and Shaggy Kanga to ride. Soon after, a hydra attacks and knocks Shaggy off his Kanga. Once his butt hits the ground, the hydra disappears and the villain, the Duke of Deception, a minion foe and ally of Ares, shows himself. He created all of these illusions, so that Wonder Woman would be forced to call Batman to the island to investigate and by having him set foot on the island would break Aphrodite’s Law and cause all the Amazons to lose their powers. However, when Shaggy fell, only his butt hit the ground and he never actually set foot on the island, so the Amazon’s didn’t lose their abilities and Wonder Woman was able to defeat the Duke. In the end, Daphne and Velma are crowned as Amazons and even Fred and Shaggy are made honorary Amazons, even though they are men.

A fun, action-packed ending to this fun, all-ages crossover. While I’m not a big Scooby-Doo fan, I do like the character of Wonder Woman and really enjoyed this team-up between the two properties. The first part of this storyarc focused on the girls and this part really focuses on Shaggy and his crazy plunders. The Duke is a ridiculous villain, which is perfect for a Scooby-Doo comic. I’ve complained that comics have gotten more violent and adult as I’ve gotten older, which is fine FOR ME, but I do miss the days of kid-friendly comics and general all-ages fun, which this storyarc has in spades. A fun story with great, cartoony art that gives us a team-up between two great properties, what’s not to love!?

Guest Appearance: by Scott Snyder

I wanted to go to a new comic store, one that I discovered was in Ithaca, NY, called Comics for Collectors, with my friend LadyB. This store was an hour away from where we live, but I wanted to browse their wares, so we decided to go. Luckily for me, the owner of my local store, Heroes Your Mom Threw Out, posted on Facebook that Scott Snyder was going to appear at Comics for Collectors the very day (yesterday, July 6th) we decided to go. This trip was blessed by the gods! Well, we made it and I got to meet Scott Snyder (and he signed my copy of Superman Unchained #1). Scott Snyder is a funny and extremely nice guy. It was great to meet one of my favorite comic writers. Here’s a picture of Scott and I, snapped by LadyB.
