Issue Notes

No editor credited in indicia. Editors are credited for the individual stories, but not for the issue overall. Printed by Transcontinental Printing Interweb Montreal, a division of Transcontinental Printing, Inc., Boucherville, QC, Canada 08/06/2020 (per indicia).

The cover layout changes first seen last issue (#104) remain in effect.

First issue of this title to be released on a Tuesday, per DC Comics' new distribution methodologies of 2020.

All advertising in this issue is for DC or Warner product. No non-house ads or activity pages appear. Of those ads, 13 are for DC Graphic Novels for kids, one for a DC Graphic Novel for "middle grade", and one for the Legion of Superheroes (Animated) Complete Series on Blu-ray.

The source of the reprint material appearing in this issue is misidentified in the indicia, thusly: “Contains reprint material from SCOOBY-DOO 121, 153 Copyright © 2003, 2010 Hanna-Barbera.” There is only ONE reprinted story in this issue, and it is from SCOOBY-DOO (DC, 1997 Series) #51 (October, 2001).

The previous issue (#104) happens to have TWO reprinted stories - one from SCOOBY-DOO #121 and one from SCOOBY-DOO #153. It is very likely this reprint citation was unintentionally carried over from the previous issue.

Indexer Notes

A rare Scooby-Doo story penciled by Dan DeCarlo – best known for his classic work on Archie comics! DeCarlo’s “influence of style” is clearly evident in this story, with an image of “Ashley Stunn” looking just like Betty Cooper (page one, panel three), square-jawed Fred having the “rounded jawline of Archie” – looking like a drawing of Archie Andrews with Fred’s blonde hair and sans Archie’s freckles (page five, panel one), and all of the incidental characters (to one extent or another) looking as if they stepped out of an Archie comic.
