    This series has been great at using more obscure parts of DC continuity, including this issue’s guest star of Madame Xanadu. The mysterious fortune-teller is usually helpful—but this time her prophecy indicates that if Mystery Inc. continues fighting crime with Batman, Batman will die. So as a series of robberies plagues Gotham, Mystery Inc. dodges Batman—leaving Bats put out and kind of looking like a schoolkid who’s just been dumped by his best friend. As the two crimefighters try to solve the same case separately, Alfred gets in some good one-liners now that he’s Batman’s closest confidant again. The eventual reveal comes a bit out of nowhere and is a little silly, but this continues to be a fun issue. I was hoping that Alfred’s “British friend” would actually show up, because that’s definitely Constantine and all-ages versions of the character never fail to make me laugh.

    This was another solid issue! I wouldn’t say it’s the best the series has offered but it’s delivering everything you could want from the title. I admit, outside of issue 3 I haven’t felt the need to buy any of this series myself but it is great fun and if that’s what you’re looking for, I definitely think it’s worth a gander.

    The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #6 opens with Mystery, Inc. running away from a case of bank robberies across Gotham City rather than helping Batman solve them. Although confused, Batman continues working on the case on his own (we don’t get Robin or another member of the Bat-Family here). The reason for the gang’s odd behavior is revealed in a flashback where Madame Xandu warned the kids that helping Batman on his latest case could lead to disaster for the Dark Knight Detective.

    While the bank robbers themselves aren’t all that interesting, and story is set up to examine the gang’s odd behavior more than solve the case, the set up does offer a different type of story with both Batman and the gang eventually coming to doubt the prophecy leading to an unmasking of the fake fortune teller in classic Scooby-Doo fashion revealing another classic Batman villain.

    The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #2.6 was okay. Personally, this issue was a miss for me but it’s an okay comic to read if you’re looking for something simple. I think more could have been explored with the ultimate villain of the issue as well as the inclusion of Madame Xanadu. I also think a more complicated crime than a string of bank robberies would have suited the story more, but maybe that’s just me.
