    1 thought on “Scooby Apocalypse, Volume 1

    1. 2.5 starsScooby Dooby Doo We ve gone through a lot of different incarnations of Scooby Shaggy over the years, and this is one of the better ones my opinion I m not sure how to describe what was done with them without spoiling too much of the storyline, but it fits with the original spirit of the characters.I d like to say that I enjoyed the update given to the rest of Mystery Inc, but that would make me a big fat liar Fred was a pathetic, groveling, hanger on who kept trying to awkwardly ride th [...]

    2. Pop quiz time The graphic novel I have read that contains the most dialogue is A Something by noted magician and obsessive wordophile Alan MooreB Something by Mametian dialogue addict Brian Michael BendisC Scooby ApocalypseGive up Yeah, it s C, and by several degrees of magnitude I ve never, in my comic reading life which, in dog years, has lasted like 7,439 years or maybe I m just bad at math , seen a book with this much dialogue much of it painfully expository and repetitive , nor so many inst [...]

    3. Read as single issues.Highly recommended Still on my monthly pull list This is a solid 4 stars for a title that is better than it has any right to be.It keeps the core concept and characters, but defines the characters better and places them in a realistic setting where the Zombie Apocalypse has been unleashedThe story crackles, theres good pathos, some humor that doesn t actually derail the title, and good interpersonal dynamics with the characters This title is actually better than many curre [...]

    4. Look, I wanted to try it, OK It s bad But not for any of the reasons I thought it might be bad The idea is actually quite nice The art is lovely I have no problem with the reimagination of the characters I quite like the overall story in theory.But the writing Oh my, the writing What has happened to Keith Giffen This is just so repetitive I lost count of the amount of times a conversation between Velma and Daphne went It wasn t my fault , yeah, you keep telling yourself that , or Daphne soften t [...]

    5. Loads of fun and a nice twist on the Scooby Doo franchise The art design for Daphne was somewhat unpleasant and inconsistent, but overall the comic is well done and enjoyable Reading Volume 2 now.

    6. I received this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review I had no idea what to expect with this book, and I really didn t set my expectations very high They were pretty low, actually I m not a fan of reboots, rewrites, or refreshes My view is that most of the time, they are not necessary, and are simply a push for nostalgia I was pleasantly surprised by this book It is a reboot, of course, but it is well written and well thought out I definitely liked the back story of Scooby being a test [...]

    7. 4.5 starsWho d have thought Scooby Doo would be THIS good This is Scooby Doo updated for an older audience So in this new universe, Scooby is an upgraded cybernetic dog and a bit of a badass He does talk, but now worries, it s still rut roh and his old school dialogue so we never forget it s Scooby Shaggy is a dog trainer, Daphne the host of an investigative TV show, Fred her cameraman, and Velma one of the smartest scientists in the world.The trouble begins when the lab Velma works at releases [...]

    8. As an old fan of the Scooby Doo gang, I was eager to try this out, but ultimately this was very disappointing First of all, other than names and color schemes, these aren t really the characters that I love That isn t necessarily a bad thing, but the execution was all wrong The depictions of the characters are really mean spirited They don t trust anyone and they are constantly fighting with each other This mean spiritedness affects the writing as well There is a particular exchange between Velm [...]

    9. I had low expectations that were far exceeded Howard Porter s art is perfect for Scooby Doo And Hi Fi s colors are gorgeous The dialogue is snappy and true to the characters from the various Hanna Barbera incarnations The story has been updated to travelling through an apocalyptian landscape instead of solving mysteries Received an advance copy from DC and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    10. I loved Scooby Doo growing up and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this modern update The story was well written, the characters had a modern spin and the artwork was superb They are the same gang we all loved riding along with in the Mystery Machine And wait til you see that

    11. Well that was differentI originally thought I was going to hate this one I don t like how the characters look and still think the artwork is meh, but I liked the story I thought it was really entertaining You got me, who has seen almost every reboot of Scooby Doo some of them were good and some of them were horrible This one is in the middle It s no where near as good as Mystery Incorporated, but it way better than Be Cool Scooby Doo.I think Scooby Doo is the only character in this that is prett [...]

    12. I grew up obsessed with Scooby Doo When I found out about this I knew I had to read it The way the characters meet each other fit into place so perfectly Even their famous words zoinks, jinkies and others come into the story just right What I really like most about this is that the characters are very different from each other but yet they connect to one another BTW, the art work is incredible

    13. The freezers have been out for days All the pizzas have gone bad Not t mention the cocktail fanks an ice cream Oh the Humanity Back in 1969 there was an amazing Saturday morning cartoon show created by Hanna Barbera called Scooby Doo, Where are you This cartoon followed 4 teenagers and an adorable great dane as they went about solving supernatural mysteries Hint it was always the grounds keeper or butler.Although the original show only lasted until October 1970 that didn t stop its popularity an [...]

    14. I will agree with some other reviewers that this title is a bit dialogue heavy and that a lot of that dialogue repeats, but honestly I don t think it s THAT bad and you can always just skim if it seems like you re in familiar territory But despite that small setback I still gave this five stars because it s just so much FUN I am convinced someone saw that Scooby Doo shirt that s been Threadless for the last 10 years which I totally own by the way and said hey we should make a comic about that Go [...]

    15. Well, I m in The reimaging really works in this world Seems to me that Shaggy was the only one who was lost in translation By making him an average, capable guy you lose something vital to the mix Character wise, he s the weak link because he s not the weak link.

    16. Over the top, dumb, graphic, and fun There s a bit too much dialogue that gets repetitive with the arguing, but everything is ridiculous enough to be enjoyable.

    17. I probably want to like this than I actually like it, and want it to be good than it really is good It s a different take on the characters, slightly mature, with of a gritty 70s science fiction vibe Think Damnation Alley , with the Mystery Machine as a post apocalyptic survival tank, in a world filled where people have been mutated by nanotech into monsters With a talking dog.

    18. When I was a kid, my main experiences of Scooby Doo and the gang were from re runs of Scooby Doo, Where Are You and the direct to DVD films Yet somehow, it still managed to become one of my favorite things ever It definitely sparked a love of mysteries and the monster of the week TV format continuing to this day with shows like Buffy and Supernatural That said, I was very wary of a Scooby reboot which dealt with the APOCALYPSE of all things I was not right to be worried and I think from now on I [...]

    19. If you re going to rely heavily on nostalgia to sell your reboot, it s generally considered wise to ensure your new product bears at least a passing resemblance to the original.This does not.Don t get me wrong, there are some very Scooby feels Shaggy has remained true to himself And who would ve thought that 70s stoner translates to 2017 hipster stoner But here we are Scooby has strong feelings about pizza Velma is still wicked smart They all use their catch phrases at least once.But it s not en [...]

    20. This was awesome When characters that you grow up with change so drastically, it s difficult to accept them, but that anger at change only lasted for an issue The story won out This is a fantastic monster apocalypse book, drowned in mystery I m not sure why every creator that gets their hand on Scrabby Doo has to make him malicious, but he s not the bad guy Just an ass hole dog trying to survive with a deep hatred for Scooby Doo because Scooby is soft hearted This book is a new origin story for [...]

    21. Jeepers This is fantastic I grew up watching Hanna Barbera on Saturday mornings and have been so excited by this HB DC event This is the second book in the Universe that I ve read I ll say this from the start that I think people are either going to hate this or love it I am in the love it corner Scooby Doo was never my favourite of the cartoons I loved the mysteries and monsters but the Scooby Shaggy part never won me over This modern rendering of the Mystery Machine gang dealing with the Apocal [...]

    22. Fun, but definitely different than the original cartoons Where Future Quest is pretty much just a cross over event for the action cartoons produced by Hanna Barbera, this is a complete reimagining Not bad by any means, just it might have been better if it wasn t such a complete departure from the source material.Also can I say that, slight spoilers, I live for Scappy Doo being a villain in this

    23. I don t mind the edgier take I just didn t like the idea behind the story of nanites turning most of humanity into various kinds of monsters It was way too over the top and goofy for me I would have preferred something akin to a mix between The X Files and The 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo with them teaming up to investigate a conspiracy involving the emergence of monsters.

    24. 3.5 Great plot twist Really like the art, totally goes with the story Really looking forward to what the gang will say when view spoiler they find out that Velma was behind the apocalypse but her brothers changed her nanites view spoiler Will definitely be picking up the next volume hide spoiler hide spoiler

    25. Better than you might expect but things get a bit talky and repetitive in the middle and there s no kind of ending, not even a cliffhanger Still, a very solid beginning to a surprisingly intriguing series.

    26. I really loved this An adult version of my favorite kids show This graphic novel was done very well It holds true to the characters traits all while bringing them into a darker far adult view This is definitely worth a read tons of action and funny dialogue.

    27. Loved the art work, but I am not sure about the story telling Especially the bickering between Daphne and Velma was irritating.

    28. The library kept me waiting for this one forever, so I probably built up my expectations while waiting to get it, and read the far superior and often compared to Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, first, so I guess I am slightly disappointed The actual concept of this book, gets an I love it, rating I love how they modernized the story and the characters and how they found a way for them to come together as a team in this version they do not all know each other, and the are definitely not all frien [...]

    29. A group of meddling kids and their dog attempting to solve a mystery that sounds pretty familiar But what if the group is comprised of an investigative reporter, her loyal cameraman, a scientist, a dog trainer and a dog who happens to be the subject of experiments into creating sentient canines, and the mystery is the end of the world Well guess what that s exactly what you get with Scooby Apocalypse Obviously, this is a much grittier take on the Scooby doo gang than we ve seen before And at fi [...]
