The Ghost Of Christmas Presents”
WRITER: John Rozum
ARTIST: Tim Harkins
SECOND EDITOR: Chuck Kim (only in this story but I don’t know who did what)
The main story finds the gang tangling with a dinosaur skeleton thief who uses a lot of holograms. It’s a decent procedural story but you don’t really get to deduce the villain. There’s not much to summarize but the investigation itself does fill out the story well enough. I liked it.
The second tale has Shaggy not so subtly hinting that he wants a new video game but it’s nowhere in stores. Not because it’s selling out but because the villain of the game keeps stopping the shipments. Um, sorry Fred but while our fake monster (why do they call it a ghost?) may mean well, he’s still breaking the law and should just work on a patch or something if he really feels that bad. Not really much of a mystery but not bad.
Overall it’s a good comic, but not really a great comic. Worth getting as a completionist but not really one to go crazy trying to find.
