    The Fandom Post - Richard Gutierrez Aug 18, 2016

    Scooby Apocalypse may have just started, but it has far exceeded what we might have expected for a new series. When we began this journey, it seemed like an ordinary adventure into the barren badlands, but it has become so much more. The characters have evolved into ones which we now have an emotional connection and it can only get better. While some may not have progressed like we might have liked, the balance has tipped to ones who were almost ignored in the original series like the walking encyclopedia and the pretty window dressing, Velma and Daphne. Though they may have functioned like one group, it was always Fred who got the attention as the leader with Shaggy and Scooby Doo filling in as comic relief. It is refreshing to see the roles reversed and let us hope that these new leads can handle the responsibility in the coming storm. Read Full Review

    The characters get a breather, but it's a detriment to the joys of the gang being chased. The visuals are top notch, though it limits how exciting the story can be. I'll stick around for more, but I want chasing, not conversing. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Chris Aug 17, 2016

    Unexpected characterization, mystery, drama, intrigue, and dare I say... fun?  The team and title are really coming together with this chapter, which reinforces the belief that this series will read a whole lot better in collected edition format.  The bwa-ha-bros finally get a chuckle out of me, and Howard Porter and Hi-Fi deliver their usual top-quality visuals.

    This pickle milkshake on a rollercoaster disagrees with me. Other people have different tastes though, so it may be just what they want. But personally, the sum of its individual parts are definitely greater than the whole. I won't stop liking the ingredients, but this recipe is one for disaster. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Aug 17, 2016

    Scooby Apocalypse #4 continues to keep this series at a nice, steady level of quality. It has its problems, but it also has a lot that makes it quite enjoyable. It's a slow moving story with strong characters and lovely looking artwork from beginning to end. Overall, this is still quite an enjoyable comic and if you have been liking it so far, you'll for sure like this. Read Full Review

    This issue introduces the most obvious and worst of Scooby villains. Porter and DeMatteis are planning something interesting with the character if you can stop yourself from groaning. Read Full Review

    Great artwork, nice variant covers, lack of action, nothing new and exciting. Classic character making an appearance makes up for lack of a slow filler issue. Read Full Review

    This comic may have set itself up with high expectations due to the nostalgia strings it hit. I'm finding this series uninspired and flat. Read Full Review

    This series continues on strongly, with the characters we know and love, bold artwork and great colouring as always. The suspense continues to grow, with a few more questions but no real answers- perhaps the series can pick up the pace a little with the storyline; but I'm loving the series enough to not want it to end any time soon. Overall, if you like the Scooby-Doo series, and you like post-apocalyptic mayhem... then you'll love this.
