    I 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.

    This 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.
