Scooby Apocalypse #25

Image

After nearly fifty years of Scooby-Doo, the unthinkable occurs! This month death claims one of the most beloved figures in pop-culture history: Fred Jones! This stunning turn of events will have repercussions that you won’t want to miss!


Digital copy can be found here.

Ze rules:

Post your review in the forum thread or in the comments section here on the front page.

Review as often or as little as you like. Once you've posted 5 reviews, you will be awarded 1 pick. You can post 5 reviews, right? That's a totally achievable goal and with day and date digital releases becoming the standard, it shouldn't matter if your shop ordered enough copies of this weeks comic or not.

When multiple Review Groupers have posted 5 (or more) qualifying reviews, they will be awarded their pick in the order that they qualified. What constitutes a qualifying review? Any review posted (with a score on a scale from 0-10, that's right 0!) within 1 calendar month of the thread going live. Reviews are to be at least 5 sentences long. It shows that a) you have at least read this week's pick and b) you have some unique insight into the comic.

Reviews posted while waiting in line for your pick will be applied to your next pick.

I'll be keeping track of everyone's progress with the newly christened Spreadsheet of Fantastic (RIP, Spreadsheet of Doom) and reporting the results in the Current Members list in the weekly OP. When it's your turn to make a pick, I will PM you. If you do not respond to me by Midnight EST the following Sunday, you will lose your pick and I will start a poll to determine that week's selection.

Any week in which we do not have a Review Grouper with 5 qualifying picks, we will determine the week's comic via poll.

If it's your week to pick, remember to keep it at $3.99 or under.

Is that a problem for you if any of us pick a mature reader's book?

Didn't want to chance it with the language in the title itself. Stuff like Saga or Walking Dead shouldn't be an issue. Hoping to get back to regular posting soon.

Makes sense, I forget sometimes that people post from public/work computers.

I had never read and issues of Scooby Apocalypse before this. I will say that I found that the concept was easy to get into and understand. I did enjoy this issue. Having said that, I can't say that I loved what I read.

I'm not sure whether or not it was a good idea to reveal that Fred died this issue before the reader even touched one page. On one hand revealing it beforehand did add a sense of curiosity about when and how it was going to happen. I suppose that was what those behind this issue was going for. On the other hand I found that the tension created by the question, "Is he going to survive? was something that was taken away by the choice to let the reader in on the death. From my point of view, that question is something I would have preferred to have had in this story.
