Scooby Apocalypse: Volume 1 (2017)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger
08.04.17

Scooby Apocalypse: Volume 1 (2017) This is a "re-imagination" of the original Hanna Barbera Saturday morning cartoon show, which places it in the present day and at the beginnings of a worldwide monster apocalypse. While the characters pretty much look the same and have some basic similarities to the original there are some big differences. Velma is a scientist who may, in part, be responsible for the monster-transforming outbreak. Daphne is the host of a low-rated television show and Fred is her cameraman, who is in love with her. It's not reciprocal. And Shaggy is a dog trainer hired by Velma's employers to manage the dogs with cybernetic implants. Of course, one of these is Scooby Doo,who was the very first experiment. Scooby was viewed as a failed experiment because he's not aggressive-but when the apocalypse happens he's the first one to defend the group.

Although I enjoyed the concept and this different view of the nostalgic characters, there's far too much repetition with the dialogue and behavior of the characters. Foremost is Daphne continually blaming Velma for the disaster they find themselves in, Velma feeling guilty, Fred moping about his unrequited love and all of them making fun of their speech patterns such as "Jinkies", "Jeepers", and "Zoinks!". I was entertained when first started reading only to end up annoyed by the end.

Writers: Keith Giffin & J.M. Dematteis
