Scooby Apocalypse #15 drops us straight into the action of a shocking confrontation we’ve all been waiting for (or so they tell us), as Scrappy-Doo’s pack of dogs encircle Scooby-Doo, whom they have been hunting for numerous issues. Before they can really do anything, however, they get called away by Scrappy, who has his own problems.
Scrappy, Velma, and Daphne have turned from enemies to unwilling allies, as the monster horde they were all following suddenly woke from a zombie-like stupor and attacked the group. The rest of the battle goes like this: Scappy’s pack attacks the monsters, Scrappy turns on Velma, Daphne attacks Scrappy, Scooby attacks the monsters, Scrappy attacks the monsters (because “Ain’t nobody killing Scoob-Doo but me!”), everyone runs away, and the monsters go back to their zombie march. Got all that?
With his pack killed off in the monster battle, Scrappy-Doo goes back to following the docile monster parade. He manages to find where they are going and we get a glimpse of what they are doing, but we will have to wait until next month to find out more in “Attack of the Giant Thingee!” (They promise to use the next 30 days to find a better title but, after last month’s claim that everybody dies, I’m not sure I trust them.)
Issue #15 is all sorts of action packed goodness, but Keith Griffen and J.M. DeMatteis still weave in a bunch of character development. Dale Eagleham’s art continues to deftly tread the line between apocalyptic dark and Scooby-Gang fun. This issue continues on at a strong 4 out of 5 for me. Is it next month yet?
