The ConfessionalWhat a ride, other than wishing someone would put tape over Daphne’s mouth, this was a fun comic to read. Since the good old days there have been so many different interpretations of Scooby Doo and the gang, and I have to say this is one of my favorites. Shaggy as a hipster almost seems like it was always meant to be. Their relationship with each other tugs at the heart strings a little, because they are supposed to be the best of friends not sniping at each other every chance they get. Then again tensions probably do run high during an apocalypse. The art was fun, colorful and light even as they face certain death. There were quite a few panels where Fred’s and Daphne’s faces just bugged the crap out of me, but that’s the risk you take when you draw a classic. This is definitely worth picking up and reading even if you don’t know the beloved characters.
