Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #15

Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #15 takes Mystery, Inc. from Central City to the darkest jungles of Africa for a team-up with the Flash. After helping the Scarlet Speedster take down the Mirror Master, Scooby and the gang hitch a ride to Gorilla City where everyone, even Grodd, needs their help in dealing with a Gorilla Ghost haunting the city of telepathic apes.

Sholly Fisch and artist Dario Brizuela certainly have fun playing with the Flash's super-speed (while making note of how everyone involved really should have their own television show). Choosing to make Grodd a victim rather than the gorilla behind the haunting of Gorilla City proves to be a nice twist.

The mystery turns out to have a goofy conclusion that fits the mold of the comic but the ghost gorilla itself isn't all that interesting (or in anyway scary). Still, it's not every day you get a comic where a talking dog and his best friends fight a ghost in city full of talking gorillas, now is it? Worth a look.
