Notes/trivia

  • Beginning with this story, the gang goes back to wearing their classic outfits that were first seen in the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! TV series, and doing so for the remainder of the comic series, having switched for a period of time to the outfits they wore on the What's New, Scooby-Doo? TV series and similar direct-to-video movies.

Reception

The first tale by Keith Champagne moves along swimmingly and while the careful reader can deduce the nature of this particular monster, the otherwise perfect story is hamstrung by an additional explanation that's completely unnecessary and contradictory to what's seen in the panels. Those panels by Scott Neely are perfectly laid out and filled with cute extras. El-Chup differs strongly from the reports given alleged eyewitnesses of the legendary goat-sucker. In Scooby-Doo, he looks like an Aztec werewolf, but given the mystery, the appearance of El-Chup is immaterial.[1]
