The June COM is a world revisited by DC Comics as we see what Mystery Inc. is up to in Scooby Apocalypse.
We had previously discussed our thoughts on re-imaginings done by DC Comics so you know we were going to have to check out Scooby Apocalypse # 1.
For starters, we did like that they did with the variants covers and ended up going with the classic plain front over the other options.
Now on to the meat of the review.
Originally we were on the fence with the new setting, but the more we read through it, the more it grew on us. The same goes for the re-designing of the characters. Sure, Shaggy’s handlebar is a bit creepy but it fits in with the world.
Another thing we noticed was the overall color of the issue. Each page was vibrant and filled with plenty of color to catch your attention but made sure you did not get too distracted.
One of the negative things we had was the tone of the comic. At times, the level of seriousness was more than we expected from a Scooby Doo comic. But it was not enough for us to put it down.
Overall, if you are a fan of Scooby and the gang, it is worth picking up this first issue and then go from there.
