Batman can’t be everywhere at once, so when a ghostly problem in Gotham resurfaces in nearby Beach City, the Scooby gang gets to play tourist.
But when the action turns spooky, they need the Dark Knight to hit the beach with them!
Dark Knight NewsI loved this trip to the beach. There are so many different facets of this comic that made it enjoyable. Even just seeing the cover got me excited. The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #2.4 is an excellent change of pace from the rest of the series, even if it took advantage of some serious emotional issues. “Gold/Fish” is great, so it’s made me actually excited for future issues.
Geek DadThis series changes its style and tone quite often, with last issue being a rather intense Court of Owls mystery. By contrast, this issue actually feels much more like a classic Scooby-Doo mystery with Batman only playing a small role. Batman tips off the Mystery Machine gang to a series of hauntings in a beach town, and they trace them back to a mysterious psychic. She helps people get in contact with their loved ones, and then the loved one comes back as an angry spirit and steals a precious object from their life. It just so happens that Velma’s recently lost a goldfish, so she’s the perfect bait to draw out the villain—all the while Shaggy and Scooby eat a lot of hot dogs. This is a pretty light story, but it does have some clever twists towards the end and continues to paint a fun picture of what it would be like if Batman and those “meddling kids” actually had a regular working relationship.
