The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #3

When you give me Batman in the best design of his costume and Catwoman in the best design of her costume, you have my attention. Dario Brizuela's art in The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #3 just makes me smile, and Ivan Cohen's story is quite enjoyable as well playing on long-running Batman and Catwoman relationship that starts with someone impersonating Catwoman in a series of crimes. Taking Batman's word that Catwoman is innocent, Mystery, Inc. set out to find the true criminal.

While sorting out the truth, with clues that lead back to the Penguin and ultimately reveal the identity of the woman he hired to frame Catwoman, we get some fun moments such as Catwoman explaining her cat-inspired crimes to Shaggy, working in the traditional unmasking, the gang being surprised by Batman's defense of Catwoman, and Catwoman's nature getting the best of her at the end of the issue. Give me more of these adventures, please.
