I will say, this was not my favorite out of all the Batman and Scooby-Doo crossover comics. Something just did not flow right. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but it was not as entertaining as the others have been. It also felt like the Scooby-Dooness of it all was kind of missing.

With the Riddler being in this issue I had high hopes for it. Riddler is one of my favorite villains and he just did not live up to expectations. I wanted it tp be full of riddles where the gang has to go on adventure with Batman and figure out all of the clues that Riddler left behind. I wasn’t looking for anything sinister since this series has been light hearted so far, but I wanted more adventure.

The artwork I am happy to say is still on point after all these issues. I love that they have not steered away from what makes Scooby-Doo so special. They have also stuck with the bright colors and I am here for it. Even though I am a huge fan of the artwork. I did feel there was not a lot of diversity in the panels. In previous comics there were tons to look at, but in this one it kept the same theme. I would not have mined it too much if they would have made it more of an adventure of solving the riddles.Β 

You know, I really did enjoy seeing Riddler and Velma solving riddles together. That was honestly a fun dynamic to see because we hardly get to see anyone on her level. This was great because you could see that Velma was enjoying herself.

Overall, it was still a silly adventure that the gang goes through and has to figure out the mystery. So in that sense the comic was not bad. But it still left me unsatisfied. AND, I was mislead as well because the cover of this comic has Batman and he was not even in it.
