SCOOBY APOCALYPSE #1

If you’re a fan of classic Hanna-Barbera, then you’re going to want to head to your nearest comic shop starting this Wednesday! Don’t expect more of the same, though, because DC Entertainment is excited to bring to you its all new all revamped HANNA-BARBERA line collecting your favorite characters upgraded in some very exciting new ways. But don’t you worry purists! While the concepts may be reimagined, the heart and soul of the classic animation remains intact.
“I can’t think of anyone that doesn’t look back at these characters with anything but fond memories,” said Dan DiDio, DC Entertainment Co-Publisher. “With this initial lineup of titles and talent, we’re excited for fans to experience the reimagining of these Saturday morning classics with a more modern and contemporary look and feel.”
It’s Saturday morning all over again, so put on your pajamas, grab your cereal, and pour that milk because this week DC Entertainment brings to you SCOOBY APOCALYPSE #1 featuring character and story designs by comics superstar and DC Entertainment Co-Publisher, Jim Lee
From writers J.M. DeMatteis (JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK) and Keith Giffen (JUSTICE LEAGUE 3001) with art by Howard Porter (SUPERMAN, JLA) those meddling kids are back at it again. Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy, and their dog, Scooby-Doo—get more ghost-debunking than they bargained for when faced with a fundamental change in their world. The apocalypse has happened. Old rules about logic no longer apply. The creatures of the night are among us, and the crew of the Magical Mystery Machine has to fight to survive—because in the apocalyptic badlands of the near-future, the horrors are real! This new monthly series takes Scooby and the gang to a whole new level.
I had a chance to read an advance copy, and though this isn’t an official review, I thought this wasn’t the terrible thing everyone thought it would be when it was first announced.
