Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #9

After sending Mystery, Inc. on a journey through time and space visiting The Jetsons and The Flintstones, Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #9 returns to its original premise of teaming Scooby and his pals up with heroes from the DC Universe. The latest issue sends Scooby and the gang to Metropolis to help out with the odd appearance of Julius Caesar's ghost inside the Daily Planet caused by the Prankster.

A fun all-age mystery, Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #9 is also filled with several nods to classic Superman adventures including Red Kryptonite (which here turns Superman into a rampaging monster), an appearance by Krypto, the play on the classic "Great Caesar's Ghost!" exclamation from the original Superman TV-show, and Scooby and Shaggy unintentionally injesting super-hero formulas giving them the temporary super-powers of Lois Lane and Jimmy from some mostly forgotten Silver Age comics.

After a pair of lackluster issues without any super-heroes to team-up with the comic returns to form here offering the same kind of zany fun delivered in its first five issues. Must-read.

[DC, $2.99]
