Reception

John Rozum informs the reader about the life of John Wilkes Boothe. He plausibly connects the Gang to the professor and cleverly throws in a metafictional joke involving their eternal youth.

Rozum trips up our ghost with a perfect clue requiring the Gang's acumen. He also gives Scoob and his friends depth that pertains to their behavior outside of the trappings of the mystery. This is something I have always liked about Rozum's take on Mystery Inc. He imagines their life beyond that of unmasking fake ghosts.

Artists Roberto Barrios Angelelli and Horacio Ottolini mesh well to forge a spooky drama. They impressed so much that I almost thought Joe Staton had returned to the book.[1]
