Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #34

After getting a call from the Birds of Prey, the girls leave Shaggy and Fred behind and take Scooby-Doo to Gotham City for a team-up with Black Canary, Batgirl, and the Huntress who need the detectives' help to uncover the attacks of large mythological birds on the city.

After giving their new friends codenames, which aren't really necessary... but okay, our heroines work on making sense out of the giant birds robbing the city. As you would expect with a Scooby-Doo mystery, there turns out to be a real-world cause for the trio of giant mythological monsters.

Birds of Prey fans should enjoy this one, and I was thrilled to see a favorite, but now sadly mostly forgotten, member of the team earn a cameo (I just wish she could have stuck around awhile longer). Eventually the group determines the giant birds are nothing more than robots under the control of the Penguin and the Birds of Prey (and a kung fu Daphne) jump into action while Velma takes control of the villain's latest toy. Worth a look.
