In the first issue of another 12-issue limited series, The Batman and Scooby-Doo Mysteries could be just up that brightly lit alley that you are looking for!

If you are lost among the dozens of Batman titles available each month, this one is a breath of fresh air. Okay, maybe not fresh air, more like damp, foggy air, the kind that hides the truth, and makes us want to bark first and investigate later!

Written by Sholly Fisch, and illustrated by Dario Brizuela (colours by Franco Riesco, letters by Saida Temofonte), this title is a romp and a half.

When Batman accompanies the Scooby-Doo investigative team to the site of an abandoned mine, the ghost town suddenly comes to life! It seems that there are many bad guys popping up all over the globe, distracting the good guys, and doggone it, they aren’t sure what to fetch first. But there are loads of international Batmen to assist them!

Brizuela breathes fun and dynamics into the frantic goings-on, with nicely rendered Batman poses, interesting viewpoints, and fun expressions.

It’s an all-ages story, amusing and engaging. And only $2.99!

DC Comics, The Batman And Scooby-Doo Mysteries 2022 #1, $2.99 for 21 pages of all ages content.

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
