    Megan Huang makes her debut on this title with a story that at first glance seems to be more serious than the average—random citizens around Gotham being overcome by a strange curse that turns them into vicious flying gargoyles who terrorize the public. This is a rare tale in that the villains seem to be targeting innocent people rather than just being a guy in a mask—or so it seems. There’s a very clever twist to this story including obscure knowledge that gives away the culprit’s identity, and this issue does well what many miss—leaving actual clues for the detectives to follow. I also noticed that this seems to be a more modern version of Gotham than we usually see in this book, with Mayor Nanako guest-starring, Oracle backing up the Bats, and a Robin who looks a lot more like Damian than the animated versions. Huang’s art has a slightly different style than Brizuela’s, but all the characters look like themselves and her monsters are particularly excellent.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    If you’re looking for a somewhat fun comic that’s also semi-educational, The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #4 is for you. If you’re hoping for the Scooby-Doo characters to be drawn in the more traditional style and for the villain to put up a bit more of a fight before he is defeated, you will be disappointed. All in all, it’s still a good mystery, but the ending is a little bit rushed.

    It’s alright. I think it’s fair to say that I didn’t enjoy it as much as last month’s, but it’s not terrible by any stretch of the imagination. My best advice would be to pick one up for a kid, or maybe wait for a the trade so you can pick it up whenever you need some lighthearted reading.

    The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #4 provides a solid mystery for the heroes to solve that still resolves itself with a classic Scooby-Doo ending with a single perpetrator behind events, here it’s Clayface turning himself into fake Gothamites and then faking each of their transformations into gargoyles. However, the art by Megan Huang felt a little rushed here, with Batman specifically looking a bit awkward in some panels. The other note is Robin is dressed as Red Robin, but the swap is never confirmed.
