Scooby-Doo for Grown-Ups

As you may know Scooby-Doo is getting a new series. Not on TV this time. The comic book world is getting a new title with the meddling kids and their dog: Scooby-Doo Apocalypse. And the adventure is not for kids anymore.


In this new series, Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, Daphne and Velma are young adults who join forces once again. This time to face real supernatural beings and survive. The world is not the same: Apocalypse has happened and rules about logic do not apply anymore. To live, and survive, this new reality the team has to get on board of the new Mystery Machine and fight the new threats while looking for a safe haven.


It's a controversial approach on the characters. Jim Lee knew it when he designed the new idea and the first drafts for what it would be. However, he also knew the public that grew watching Scooby-Doo is not the same. It is the public that watch Walking Dead and Game of Thrones nowadays. He wanted us to feel the new vibe by putting the characters we love in a new, hostile environment. And, let's face it, Warner has been putting the character in worse situations! Just check on Scooby and Shaggy got a clue and Be cool, Scooby-Doo... It's just so bad! 

I just hope people enjoy this new concept! :-)
