Well, most guys are.

Scooby-Doo #22

DC Comics (May, 1999)

PENCILER: Joe Staton

INKER: Andrew Pepoy

COLORIST: Paul Becton

LETTERER: John Costanza

ASSISTANT EDITOR: Harvey Richards

EDITOR: Dana Kurtin

“Goop On The Loose”

WRITER: Rurik Tyler

“The Curse Of Wrangler Field!”

WRITER: Joe Edkin

The first story finds the gang visiting an amusement park as it gets attacked by cotton candy monsters. The mystery angle is a bit weak here, and highlights the problem with the shorter stories. It seems devoted to watching Scooby, Shaggy, and Daphne running from the monsters and getting lucky in catching the bad guys. The only real advantage here is to show that it wasn’t Scrappy-Doo that was the problem in the later Saturday shows after Daphne returned to the show.

The second story at least gives us hints that the “ghost boar” haunting the stadium where Velma’s favorite baseball team plays is fake. It does the undercover bit better than the Archie comics, but ultimately it feels like the Archie run but with better characterization.

Overall I’m not impressed with this, but it’s better than the Archie run because at least it still acts like the show it’s based on. Not really a must-own issue but not terrible either.
