Full credits

Notes/trivia

  • "Hajj" means a pilgrimage to Mecca, something required of all Muslims that Simon wanted to do.
  • The colorist isn't credited.

Reception

The humor promised in the cover can be found in the second snack in Scooby-Doo where writer Chris Duffy and cartoonists Bill Alger and Bob Smith attempt to cure Shaggy and Scoob of their, in light of their experience, rather unbelievable terror in the face of the seeming supernatural.

The eleven panel inset assaulting extinction on page five must be seen to be appreciated. The first snack by the ever-reliable Terrence Griep Jr. employs a rather sophisticated motive for the spook in question as well as a plausible scientific explanation for the obvious culprit who amazingly for once doesn't spout those immortal lines, and "I would have conjured success from my schemes if not for those rotten kids." The art of Joe Staton and Andrew Pepoy provide more depth than one expects from a kids' show. The multiple camera angles and shadows combined with the smart script and an essay on Islam from Brownyn Taggert make Scooby-Doo an inexpensive treat for kids and adults who refuse to grow up.[1]
