My 9 year old son is a huge Scooby-Doo fan. His knowledge on the canine crime solver would rival even the oldest most seasoned enthusiast who grew up watching the original show in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Below is his review of DC Comics' latest issue of the monthly series based on Hanna-Barbera's most famous mystery-cracking team. Read on after the break!
DC Comics creates issue #60 of Scooby Doo Where Are You? Scooby and the gang sail over the river and meet the spirits of the sunken Vikings in "The Case of the Frightful Ferry." I like everything about this story, but my favorite part was Captain Cruz’s creepy smile. It reminded me of the Joker. I was surprised who the Viking spirit was.
The second story in issue #60 is "Scooba Doo!" Scooby and the gang go aboard the S.S. Titan and meet Captain Ginsburg. This comic is full with action,adventure and a bit of mystery with strange creatures of the sea. My favorite part is that there is some weird item coming out of a bag. What I did not like was the mermaid because there was not enough mystery. It surprised me who the crooks were. If you read issue 60 of Scooby Doo you will see who it really is.
