Why can't I stay away from the comics at the Library? I have so many in my own collection begging to read, but here I am, picking up another fresh title.

Not the first time I have seen a Scooby Doo/Batman crossover. But definitely the first time I've been interested enough to pick it up. My youngest is really getting into Batman, so any chance to read the lighter versions of the Cape Crusader must always be taken!

This was definitely an interesting piece, as each issue/story had us travelling through the different eras of Batman's career. Starting in his earliest days all the way up to the "present". We get some child-friendly fun adventures with time-travelling included. Along with some reappearances of classic characters like Harvey Harris and Ace the Bathound. Also hidden among the artwork are nods to past adventures at even I as a part-time fan recognized.

The artwork was fun, it is very Scooby Doo and Hanna-Barbera, bright, colourful, engaging, and just perfect to get my youngest locked into the storytelling. They did justice to the entire series and the characters involved and it seems like it was produced by a team who truly cared.

Worth the read and I can forsee the youngest requesting it again soon!
