Retro Review: Hanna-Barbera Scooby-Doo…Where Are You! #13

Hanna-Barbera Scooby-Doo…Where Are You! #13 Review

This is by far the oldest comic I own, not to mention my oldest piece of Scooby merchandise. This is pretty cool for me, but! …is it any good?

ScoobyDoo_GoldKey

The Cover: Yikes! This cover is all over the place!
I guess the Scooby-Doo logo we all know, or even something close to it, hadn’t been established by 1972? The characters look pretty close to how they did in the original series, so that’s good. The background is pretty damn bland and uninteresting. Plain color and a shadow aren’t very eye catching. But overall for a comic based on a Saturday Morning Cartoon in the early 70′s I can’t complain to much.

Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #5 Review

TeamUp_5 (1) Story: Trouble in Paradise Writer: Sholly Fisch Artist: Dario Brizuela Plot: Wonder Woman invites Velma and Daphne to Paradise Island to solve a series of monster attacks where the a mythological creature attacks and then disappears without a trace. Teamup5_1

Okay, so I’m probably just being nitpicky since I did enjoy this issue, but I was slightly disappointed that Daphne and Velma would be the main focus of the book…which they were. But when I started reading this issue, I was half hoping it would be mostly Daphne, Velma, and Scooby and that Fred and Shaggy would have a small role to play. Alas they did find a way to bring the guys into the story. That’s not a bad thing, mind you. There are some nice moments with Shaggy driving Wonder Woman’s invisible jet. But since this is a Wonder Woman team-up, I just wanted to see some more girl power.

Is KISS Making Another Appearance On Scooby-Doo?

If you remember the halloween special from What’s New Scooby-Doo, rock band KISS made a cameo appearance in that episode. Now it appears KISS will be teaming up with Scooby & the gang once more. Mindy Cohn tweeted this on May 31st:

This could very well be Freak Out Scooby-Doo!, one of the DTVs coming in 2015{though the title comes from IMDB, so take that with a grain of salt}. This would also seem to indicate that it will be Rock & Roll themed, depending on how big a role they have in the movie.

Why I’m Excited For The Scooby-Doo Reboot

While I’m sitting here writing this, I’m listening to the soundtrack for the original Scooby-Doo movie. Why? Because this announcement about a reboot has me jazzed for more live action Scooby. Now yes, I was psyched about the animated movie. Don’t get me wrong. But I think a live action Scooby film made today could be really awesome. This is the perfect opportunity to fix many of the mistakes made by the previous films. Technology wasn’t quite where it needed to be to make a Scooby-Doo movie back in the early 2000′s{evident by it’s terrible CGI}. You can get away with so much more nowadays. This movie, if done right, could be amazing. Imagine a live action movie similar in tone to Zombie Island. That’s what I’m hoping this movie will be.

A Scooby-Doo Reboot Is On The Way

ScoobyDooReboot

According to Deadline, Warner Bros has hired Randall Green to write a Scooby-Doo reboot. This seems unrelated to that animated film that was announced almost a year ago, even though original producer Charles Roven is still attached to produce.  Unfortunately, those are the only details given at the moment.

While there’s a chance this and the animated movie are one and the same, that seems unlikely. The Deadline article specifically says that Warner Brothers is starting from scratch. And while the article doesn’t say one way or the other, it leads me to believe it will be live action, and I’m okay with that. Why? Because I think there’s a chance it can be done right this time around. CGI has come a long way since the 2002 film. I have never liked CGI Scooby in those movies. But they can easily pull him off now. There’s also the question of who they’re making this for. Are they going for the younger crowd, or are they going a little bit darker? I would prefer a more darker tone{ala Zombie Island} mainly because I don’t want to see another Scooby-Doo movie that’s all fart jokes again, but that’s just me.
