The Scooby Apocalypse Is Coming From DC Comics

ScoobApocalypse_Final
A new slate of Hanna-Barbera comics is coming from DC Comics. The “crown jewel” of these new books will be Scooby Apocalypse, a modern-day take on the classic cartoon. Scooby Apocalypse will be helmet by Jim Lee, Howard Porter and Keith Giffen.

“I’m a huge Scooby Doo fan, as I think most people are,” admits Lee. “I mean, look at these iconic series and they were cultural touchstones for everyone. All my kids know of Scooby Doo from the various cartoons and live action movies, and we’re in a period where you have people my age that are spending their days thinking about cartoon and sci-fi action movies. It’s a multigenerational obsession at this point, and we just thought it would just be really interesting to take the cartoon version of these characters and see where they would be if we took what existed in the very first iteration of the cartoon and moved it into this day and age.”

Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! Returns November 30

BCSD_poster

For those waiting on new episodes of “Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!“, you won’t have to wait much longer. Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! will return with an all-new Christmas special on Monday, November 30 at 12:30p/11:30a Central.  Here’s a plot summary from Scooby Snax.com.

The gang spends Christmas in the original Christmas City – Bethlehem- where the Moravian Star plays a key part in the mystery that surrounds the town.

I know I’ve only posted a review of the pilot, so here’s my thoughts on the series so far. I honestly wasn’t expecting this show to be this good. I still don’t like the animation. But once you get past that, it really is a well written and funny show. This is the exact opposite of Mystery Incorporated – and I say that in a good way. The humor is the highlight here. The slight changes they’ve made to the gang are good. I like how Fred isn’t a clueless dork obsessed with traps, even though they put some of that into Daphne. I could do without Daphne’s “Daphneisms” each episode{but really, it isn’t that bad}. Kate Micucci does an okay job as Velma. Overall, it’s a great series. Unfortunately, Cartoon Network has been yanking the show around its schedule like they did with SDMI, so that’s disappointing.

Retro Comic Review: “Scooby-Doo Surf’s Up!” Part 3

Goop On The Loose Review

Two youths head into the Tunnel Of Love and are almost immediately attacked by two man-shaped pink globs.  Mystery Inc. is enjoying opening day at the theme park when they hear the screams and run to help.

Art: Joe Staton, talk about a mixed bag!
Parts of this one look like they were done in such a rush that it’s almost tragic, while other parts look like he toiled away many an hour to get them just right. The highlight being the entire 4 page rollercoaster sequence, which is one of the best sections of a Scooby comic I’ve seen.

Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! “Mystery 101” Review

vlcsnap-2015-10-06-18h12m59s694

Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! Is probably the most controversial incarnation of Scooby since Get A Clue. From the animation to the designs of the characters, this show had a lot of things going against it. I tried to keep an open as much as possible despite the animation choices.. While I can’t say I loved the first episode of Be Cool, it was a very good start to a series that shows lots of potential.

BCSDEp1_004

Let’s start with the most controversial aspect of this show: the animation. I admit, I wasn’t really a fan of it upon first viewing. I think it comes down to the design of the gang.  Something about them just irks me the wrong way. It’s weird too. The rest of the animation is just fine. I like the color palette, I like the design of the villain. It’s the designs of the human characters that bug me.
