Reception

In the first story, the source of Velma's famous exclamation gets multiple furry faces. The mystery is a clever little piece that makes use of classic pop culture staples--sea monkeys and some actual science--always welcome.

The Gang read as perfect-pitch characterization, and a real prevalent crime can be found in the center of the story.

Joe Staton of course does his usual fantastic job when illustrating the Gang. This issue he gets the chance to show a flashback of Daphne Blake as a kid, and the incarnation naturally bears a dead-on resemblance to the young Daphne seen in A Pup Named Scooby Doo, one of the less awful spin-offs of the show. Hey, at least Scrappy wasn't in it.[1]
