Scooby-Doo Team-Up #15 (Family Comic Friday)
Talk about your 'fast food'-
see, the puns are the worst!
When Scooby and the gang assist the Flash in taking down a dragon assailing Central City, the action jumps to deepest darkest Africa. There the residents of Gorilla City have spooked by a ghost ape that warns of terrible doom if the citizens do not abandon the scientific marvel. The Flash and the Mystery Gang race to the scene already assuming who the mastermind behind this caper is- the treacherous Grodd who just escaped his prison cell yet again. However, all bets are off when the simian villain seeks out the Flash to keep the ghostly gorilla from haunting Grodd too!
Scooby-Doo Team-Up is one of my favorite comics. So much that I can't wait to find issues in the bargain bin. It's the only book that I buy off the shelf at my favorite used bookstore and LCS, Books Do Furnish A Room. I just hope with DC rebooting the look of the Scoobies that they don't cancel this fantastic series. (Since I love this title, it's days are probably numbered.)
That being said, SDTU is the perfect combination of classic Hanna-Barbera, retro DC Universe and modern pop culture references. I loved when Fred told Flash that he deserves his own TV show! Both fun and funny, (though some of the puns are groaners) this is a great all ages read and at $2.99, friendly on the wallet.
If you child loves mysteries, superheroes, and cartoons, you need to make this bimonthly book a regular part of their downtime reading!
