The world is a monster madhouse, and Scooby and the gang have been fighting for their lives, for every sunrise, for every moment. But they've had enough-it's time to stop reacting and start solving the mystery of who turned all of humanity into mindless hordes of bloodthirsty creatures. A single clue leads the gang and their Mystery Machine to Seattle, on the trail of one of the four scientists who infected the world with nanites. Where to start? Velma has a plan, and watch out, because whenever Velma has a plan, things get very dangerous very fast.

    They always say you hurt the ones you love, and if that is the case, then Daphne must really be enraptured by our coke bottle bespectacled scientist! It seems that with every issue, the two go at it with ever more intensity than before and the fight is never settled, with Velma getting the worst of the verbal abuse. If this is the case, how much longer will it be before she snaps and lets our favorite red head have it? However, if it does come to that, I can only imagine that she will have to spend the latter half of the issue explaining the insults she used in the first half! After all, how effective will her counterargument be if the other doesn't understand the results? Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Tom Guilfoyle Sep 30, 2016

    This issue is a great read, however it's the art that makes this issue. Porter produces some great art that's accompanied with Hi-Fi's colors to create some beautiful pages.J.M. DeMatteis and Keith Giffen do a fine job with the writing however the conflict with Velma and Daphne is getting repetitive. However with the apparent closure of this conflict could bring something new next issue. Read Full Review

    I'll continue to read this, and to be honest it's one of the titles I look forward to each month because I desperately hope it gets things right. But until this series makes some big moves forward, I can't keep doing this. When that happens I'll be happy to review it again, and I hope that those who are enjoying it continue with it.

    Weird Science - Chris Sep 14, 2016

    While the art and colors continue to deliver... the story feels like something of a step backwards. It appeared as though we were nearing a breakthrough where the characters would gel and be cool to one another... instead, we're back to bickering. There wasn't a whole lot to move the story forward here, instead much of this issue came across as padding. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Sep 14, 2016

    Scooby Apocalypse #5 is the weakest issue of the series, but still decent to read. Its main problem lies in the fact it felt like neither the story nor the characters really progressed all that much. It had an entertaining story and situation, but it just needed a bit more to make it better. Even with this small slump though, this is still an issue that was enjoyable to read and is worth your time if you've been liking the run up till now. Read Full Review
