Crystal Cove is proud of their tenacious teens and wants to be able to call upon Mystery Inc. at a moment's notice--you never know when a real estate developer in a mask will cause trouble. Inspired by Gotham's most famous method of communication, they invite Commissioner Gordon and Batman to the unveiling of the town's new Scooby Signal!

    There were so many references in this issue! The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #2.9 made sure to truly go for a crossover. From both big bad clowns showing up to the opening, depicting a young Shaggy and Scooby losing something they loved at a theater (poor Bruce Wayne!), this issue was rife with parallels and clever winks to the readers. I'm still not entirely sold on this issue's art style, but that doesn't take away from the story at all. Read Full Review

    Some readers may be confused or annoyed at the art of The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #9, wishing for consistent character designs. Sticklers for continuity will be annoyed, but if this is read as a fun homage story, which is probably the intention, you will enjoy it. It truly pays tribute to the rich histories of both Batman and Scooby-Doo. It has something for Scooby fans and bat-fans of multiple generations, a perfect comic the whole family can enjoy.

    This is a particularly fast-paced issue, with a more serious villain than the usual fare who wastes no time in exposing himself in his plan for revenge. The stakes are a little higher, but the ending has a great dose of karma for our evil clown mastermind. Read Full Review

    The use of classic Scooby-Doo villain Ghost Clown works well for the story while letting Batman and readers jump to false conclusions that the Joker is responsible for ruining the Scooby Gang's big day. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - William Martin Jun 14, 2023

    At its core, this is the least interesting script this series has had to offer by a decent margin. Much of what takes it from uninteresting to bad is in the details. Then when you throw some of the worst art I've ever seen in a big two comic on top of it there's just nothing left to like. It get's one point for being a comic that exists and half a point for including the Ghost Clown. Don't buy this comic. Read Full Review
