One of our favorite contemporary comic books is SCOOBY-DOO TEAM-UP, my discovery of which is chronicled in THIS POST, and another extraordinary issue is discussed HERE.
This wonderful title, in which the Scooby-Doo Mystery Inc. gang can apparently crossover with (presumably) the entirety of the DC Comics, Warner Bros. and Hanna-Barbera “Universes”, consistently showed great imagination and wit, as well as SUPERB character bits and observations (some seen below) in its first four issues.
Issue # 5 with Wonder Woman and Issue # 6 with the Super Friends seemed just a “little less so” in the “superb character bits and observations” department, though still very enjoyable…
…But I expect this to seriously rebound in Issue # 7!
According to “Friend of This Blog” Dan Cunningham – he of the superlative Blog series on Disney Comics that I never miss an opportunity to plug -- Issue # 7 of SCOOBY-DOO TEAM-UP will feature (…Drumroll!) THE FLINTSTONES!
HERE’S the link provided by Dan!
The basic story idea sounds a bit like Vic Lockman and Phil DeLara’s “The Flintstones Meet Frankenstein and Dracula” (THE FLINTSTONES # 33, April, 1966), with the Scooby-gang being brought back in time to the days of Bedrock… to (guess what?) solve a mystery.
Maybe even Perry Gunnite will be on hand (...or, thrown overboard).
Or, the Gruesomes?
Or, dare I possibly hope for Alvin Brickrock?
With the generally high quality of SCOOBY-DOO TEAM-UP, anything’s possible!
No matter, with all the talk about (and built-up desire for) a FLINTSTONES comic, as seen in THIS RECENT POST and THIS ONE, I expect this issue of SCOOBY-DOO TEAM-UP to be popular and well-received by the readers of this Blog.
