DC Digital Scooby Doo Team-Up #59 review


When there's something strange in the neighbourhood, who ya gonna call? Mystery Inc, of course!


And the Challengers of the Unknown. Fred, Velma, Daphne, Shaggy and Scooby are used to teaming up with other adventurers, so are surprised when Red, Rocky, June, Ace and Prof prove rather proprietorial about the latest mystery. 

As for what the mystery is…


I don't trust that little guy, he's likely a Challs enemy hoping to con someone into doing the legwork for him. 

We’ll learn if I'm correct in the concluding part of this DC Digital debut. It's typically delightful work from writer Sholly Fisch, artist Dario Brizuela, colourist Franco Rizuela and letterer Saida Temofonte. The Challs are a tad more pompous than I'm used to, but I've never seen them faced with an equally adept adventuring operation. I could certainly see a bunch of alpha types being overly protective of their professional area. 

As if the Challs aren't enough, Fisch throws in another Silver Age DC team. 


Well, they do all wear purple. And we look to be getting another group of guest stars in the conclusion. 

Whether you're an old DC fan, or a newcomer to the heroes who live on borrowed time, don't miss this story - it's massive fun, with its witty, well-worked script and open, attractive cartooning. Who needs a gnome king’s treasure when you have a comic this good.

  1. I just read an old Sea Devils comic this weekend, so I'm doubly ready for this!

    1. I've only read a handful, I must track some down. Wonder if there's a Showcase.

  2. I don't recall a gnome king appearing in Challengers (although the Kirby issues had some pretty fantastic menaces. Maybe there was a gnome there) but it wouldn't surprise me if it was Multi-Man.

  3. Just read the print version. Guest stars galore in this issue -- including one secretive team I didn't expect at all, but was very happy to see! I loved how Velma noticed that they all seem to be iterations of the same idea.

    1. And Daphne wasn’t far behind. I’m so glad Goober DIDN’T show up.
