A new DC Comics brand emblem appears on the cover of this issue. It is shaped like a capsule, with the letters "DC" within a circle at the very top, the issue number is directly below the "DC Circle", and a floating head icon of Scooby-Doo appears within another circle directly below the issue number. It is regarded as a minor variation of the 2016 "DC [circle and serifs]" brand emblem.
New story. Fred's trademark ascot figures into the monster-trapping action. A tribute reference to the creators of Scooby-Doo, Ken Spears and Joe Ruby, is found in the dialogue of the final panel.
Rather than his standard exclamation of "Zoinks!", in this story Shaggy cries out "EEK!" - twice on one page.
For its original 2003 printing, this story was the lead story in Scooby-Doo (DC, 1997 Series) #70 – at a time when DC Comics still published its indicia at the bottom of interior page one. Extra space was allowed for the indicia to fit below the artwork of page one of this story – resulting in the "image-area" of the page being smaller in total area than those compromising the balance of the story. For this reprint, in Scooby-Doo Where Are You? (DC, 2010 Series) #109, the smaller “aspect ratio” for page one remains – and has not been compensated for – while all other pages are of standard image size.
