The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #4

Compared to some of the more elaborate setups of throwing Batman and Mystery, Inc. together with various other comic and cartoon characters, The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #4 is pretty straightforward. Based on Batman's recommendation, Scooby-Doo and the gang head to the beach to investigate ghost sightings not far outside of Gotham in Beach City.

Other than an appearance by Batman at the beginning and the identity of the person behind the ghosts haunting the beach being a classic villain, The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #4 is a pretty standard Scooby-Doo story that doesn't really need the Caped Crusader to make it work. Although superfluous, it's always fun to see the Scooby version of Batman (and the comic does also deliver my favorite version of one of the Bat-villains in the unmasking) so there's still something here for fans.
