Of course our gang can’t even help Daphne go gift shopping without running into trouble. This time the town they go to is being robbed by a Roc, a mythical giant bird. Once again, no mystery for us to solve but still a good story. This is the problem with the two story nonsense. You need a full comic to tell a proper solving mystery.
Our second tale sends the gang to London, called by the runner of a fake ghost tour (for entertainment, he’s not scamming anyone with his ghostly actors) because a real ghost bus (or “real” until the gang deal with it) ruining his tour. Same old complaint, same old praise. It’s like being in a rut with this series, good stories but the draw of the show past Shaggy and Scooby’s antics were in trying to solve the mystery before the gang revealed who it was and how they did it.
So overall a pretty average issue but with two good stories so I do think it’s worth checking into, especially with them still free on comiXology as of this writing.
